Ridge Vineyards Paso Robles Zinfandel 2018
|Region||California, Central Coast, Paso Robles|
Dark garnet-red color. Aromas of ripe plum and cherry fruits, sweet oak, and complex gravel earth. Enters with sweet bramble fruit, rich tannins, toasted oak, and complex minerality. Refreshing acidity supports a long finish.
Coming from the Benito Dusi Ranch Vineyard in Paso Robles and 100% varietal, the 2018 Zinfandel Paso Robles offers a big, classic nose of plums, cigar wrapper, sandalwood, and candied violets. Rich, medium to full-bodied, beautifully fruited, and textured, it has good acidity as well as a clean, dry finish. It's a classic Paso Robles Zinfandel to enjoy over the coming 7-8 years.
Defined by a taut core of lively tannins and acidity, this draws in raspberry, smoky dill and green peppercorn flavors. Best from 2021 through 2030. 5,600 cases made.
