Sleek Zin that, at least in this tasting, leans more towards the herbal and earthy side than my favorite of the Ridge Pagani's. Still, has the flawless Ridge touch in terms of balance and food-friendliness. A year of two from peaking, it still shows savory berry flavors on top of a spicy, cedary core. I'll need to revisit this one in a year or two since I'm seriously under-rating this compared to some other reviews I've read. - HK 2020-10-30
