Ridge Vineyards Geyserville Vineyard Zinfandel Blend 2015

Sipping Fine Wine Delectable Pro

A blend of 70% Zinfandel, 15% Carignane, 12% Petite Sirah and 3% Alicante Bouschet. Complex aromas of dark fruit, spice and earthy notes. On the palate plum and cherry with smoky oak, pepper and cacao wrapped in generous acidity. Fine sweet tannins, still tight, lingering, good structure ending with some earthy tones. Needs a couple of years to rest. Nice!

Dust, friendly acid, dried tart cranberry, tannins evident but soft, woody. 50th vintage! Hold in the cellar.

Supple, ripe, best served with a slight chill to accentuate the fruit.

Well balanced but more jammy than other ridge Zins. Cherry on the nose and good finish.

Excellent. A little young but did great after 15 minutes of breathing. Wonderful holiday drinking! I’d buy if you find. Great all the way throughout.
