The opaque purple-colored 1997 Zinfandel Pagani Ranch (88% Zinfandel, 7% Mataro, 3% Petite Sirah, and 2% Alicante Bouchet that achieved 14.6% alcohol) exhibits what the French call sur maturite (over-ripeness). A monolithic wine with huge, muscular, concentrated flavors, it had not yet begun to reveal much delineation or evolution, despite the fact it is already in bottle. There are layers of concentrated fruit, plenty of blackberry, plum, jammy notes, and enough acidity and tannin to buttress this enormously-endowed wine.
Dark, ripe, rich and concentrated, with chewy black cherry, blackberry, chocolate and cedar, finishing with chunky tannins.
Red-ruby. Port-like aromas of chocolate and black cherry; shows a distinctly raisiny suggestion of surmaturite Big, rich, sweet and muscular; really fills the mouth with superripe flavor. Finishes with substantial chewy, tongue-dusting tannins.
