Draper-worthy Zin heavyweight, from old vines (most 110 years old) on the Llewelyn Vineyard on Ducher Creek, located between Alexander Valley and Dry Creek in Sonoma Co. (How's that for the center of the Zin universe?) Mouth-coating, black cherries, long and deep. Very drinkable now. Enjoy. - MJA 2002-05-23

[harriss  2003-02-08] I really liked this wine, though I found it more elegant than powerful despite its alcohol level. Along with the tasty fruit, the wine has some earthiness and a pleasant level of spice and mint. \"Low-priced\" for a Ridge. I think it\'s available only at the winery now.  User Rating: 87.
