This is a new offering from Ridge, though the grapes from the vineyard have been used in other Ridge bottlings in the past. This is an excellent, rich Russian River Zin with a forward fruit-laden nose of red licorice, blueberry, and cherry. Fairly structured in the mouth with significant tannin that should soften up in a year or two. - WB team 2004-06-04
