Yet another Ridge Paso Robles that is holding beautifully. Quintessential rich Zinfandel nose, with more berry and licorice notes being apparent than in earlier tastings, when the plumminess dominated. Seems to have grown in complexity without losing any of its vibrancy or freshness. Elegant, rich feel in the mouth and a lingering finish. In our view, only a tiny step behind the '91 and '92 Paso Robles, both of which were superb also. - WB Team 2000-08-06
