    This is a Zinfandel based blend that's simply well-made with fruit from a famous, classic Sonoma vineyard. Pagani Ranch contains some of the oldest vines dating back to the 1880's and Ridge has been sourcing from them since 1991. The 2015 blend consists of mostly Zinfandel, with​ Alicante Bouschet and Petite Sirah adding color, fullness and dark elements to the wine. No doubt, this is a rich wine with brambly berry fruit, some spice and hints of floral notes as well. The intense flavors and aromas will certainly please all fellow Zin lovers.

    The 2015 Pagani Zin has an explosive nose of sweet, ripe fruit, macerated liquored cherries, exotic spices and scorched earth. The palate is packed with similar flavors, full-bodied and very fruit forward but with beautifully judged extraction. Sure the flavors are ripe (it's from one of the warmest, earliest harvests in living memory) but there is delicious freshness and vibrancy to the wine. Nothing about it's fruit profile stewed or roasted. People are going to love this wine from the get go...it's the perfect essence of Zinfandel.

    While the 2015 Lytton Springs is more a more structured and nuanced wine, the Pagani Ranch is the real crowd pleaser. It's so soft and loaded with sweet cassis fruit right off the bat with hints of violet on the finish and a texture that's like velvet on the tongue. I'm far from what you'd consider a big, rich California wine lover, but as a professional I like anything that's well made. I really enjoyed this wine, from its immediate charm and juicy character to its plush mouthfeel and seductive sweetness. There's a reason Ridge is one of the most iconic California winemakers in the business and it's wines like this that help to cement that reputation.
