Easily my pick of the 2011 Ridge Zins. Ripeness surprising for the cold year, elegant, and perfectly balanced. Juicy ripe dark berry fruit with a beautiful touch of cinnamon spice and toasty oak. Smooth as glass start to finish, yet satisfyingly full and long. Maybe not a profound as Lytton Springs can sometimes be, but not far off. - HK 2015-09-17
