A pleasant surprise, though perhaps a bit un-Ridge-like in its youthful approachability. Rather like a top-notch Cotes du Rhone: warm, soft, balanced, though not particularly powerful. Excellent sweet blackberry flavors with an attractive floral component for extra complexity. We preferred it to some of the Ridge Zins in this "low" price range. - WB Team 2001-06-13
