    This wine is starting to come into it's own since the last time I tasted it, about 6 months ago. The plumb and blackberry nose is still extremely intense, you will notice it before the glass is all the way up to your face. This is a big complex wine with lots of depth and a refined mouth feel. The Petite Syrah (18%) brings big tannins to the wine, but they are not over the top. The combination of big fruit, bold tannins and noticeable acid will allow this wine to age gracefully over the next 5-10 years. Drink one now but revisit it again in a few years.

    This Zinfandel-dominant blend from top producer Ridge is perfectly balanced with deep red fruit, maritime acidity, and a slight touch of American oak. Ridge develops intense flavors and complexity in their wine with old-vine plantings, no irrigation, and sustainable farming. One of my favorite aspects about Ridge is the ingredient list on their labels, showing consumers everything that goes into their wines. This particular vintage is medium- to full-bodied with silky tannins. Always a favorite producer of mine, the Lytton Springs is a fantastic, classic example of how Zinfandel should be made.

    A wonderfully age-worthy Zin! The Lytton Springs has ripe, juicy, purple fruits on the mid-palate and great acid, but it is still tight and quite young. In a few years, when then tannins have relaxed, I can see this wine being full-bodied, dynamic and layered with earth, spice and deep fruit. I am eager to enjoy it again!
