Ignore mostly everything you know about high-octane Zins when you drink Ridge. They beat to their own drum. Of course, with a wine like this it’s going to be a little all over the place (since it’s from no specific vineyard). It’s big on plums and jammy black fruit, but still managing to remain fairly medium bodied, getting a little “redder” towards the finish. Old world notes of pepper, bacon, faint spice and oak.



Go big or go home…in terms of food, I mean. You’ll need some fairly big and robust flavors to balance out pretty-much an Zin/Zin blend. I’m talking BBQ ribs, lasagna, beef stew, duck, bacon, brisket and veal.


Tasting this wine I was listening to…
