Tasty berry flavors are the highlight in this flavorful if straightforward Ridge Zin. Has an old-vine pruney-earthy edge (I mean that positively) but still has good liveliness. On the down-side, didn't display the extra edges of flavor and complexity that would give it a higher rating. Still, a solid and pleasurable Zin. - HK 2003-10-27
