From a strange and difficult vintage for Zin, this Geyserville seems fatter and more forward than usual, drinking well at age 5, but lacking the grip and focus that sometimes puts the Geyserville in the superstar range. Ripe, velvety berry fruit with a dose of spice, beautifully balanced and with nothing out of sync - which is the expectation with Ridge Zins. - HK 2015-05-31
