Healthy deep ruby color. Nicely concentrated flavors of dark plum/prune, port wine, dried cherry, and a sweet, cinnamon-like spicy edge. Also has an attractive fresh cranberry component that I often taste in Russian River Zins (as opposed to Paso Robles). Pleasant and drinkable immediately after release, but has mellowed and deepened remarkably well in the bottle. Seems to have gained an an extra layer of fat and richness. This is one of my favorite Paso Robles releases from Ridge. - HK 2018-06-24
