The Pagani Ranch is often one of my favorite RIdge Zins, but that's not the case in 2011. I've tasted it several times since release, and if anything it seems to be losing energy with time. Reserved nose of cherry, red currants, plum, spice. In the mouth, it seems diluted and enervated and short on on depth and grip. Certainly pleasant, just not remotely up to the peaks this wine can sometimes reach. - HK 2015-04-05
