Another iconic site from Ridge, the 2008 Zinfandel York Creek (79% Zinfandel and 21% Petite Sirah, tipping the scales at 14.9% alcohol) displays plenty of boysenberry, blueberry and black cherry fruit notes, a healthy dark ruby/purple color similar to the other wines, but more earth, tannin, structure and grip. This is not as forward and elegant as the Lytton Springs, nor as exuberant and flamboyant as the Pagani Ranch. It is almost a Zinfandel with a Cabernet Sauvignon soul and structure. (RP)
Glass-staining ruby. Pungent, expressive aromas of blackberry, cherry pit, licorice and oak spices, with a hint of dried flowers. Juicy and focused but youthfully gripping, with a bitter quality to the distinctly ripe flavors of cherry compote, dark berries and licorice. The bitter cherry and oak spice notes repeating on the punchy finish. I'll bet that some bottle aging will bring more finesse. There's 21% Petite Sirah in this wine and it shows today.
