Tasting Notes

Since 1991, Ridge has made wine from the old Pagani vineyard on the east-facing side of Sonoma Valley. It is largely planted with vines more than 100-years-old. It was clear, more than a decade ago that Pagani Ranch offered everything imagine in a fine site: low-yielding old vines, carefully tended by a quality-conscious family who, in this case, have worked the land for four generations. The vineyard's long survival is proof of its merit. An average site would have been abandoned during the thirteen years of Prohibition, or during the Depression. It's hardly news that Ridge's Pagani Zinfandel is something special. Equally outstanding and far rarer, is the small amount of Alicante (35 Barrels) made from this Sonoma County site. This Alicante includes 25% Zinfandel from the same site. The delightful red fruits and cigar box qualities have shown to age extremely well.
