Excellent Zin, though suffers in comparison with several other Ridge Paso Robles of the 90's. Spicy, oaky wine with good body and herb-tinged cherry and strawberry jam flavors in the background. The spice, oak, chocolate notes were stronger than the fruit; thus it is an unusual Paso Robles in that its charms are not so strongly fruit-based. Bottom line - the Ridge Paso Robles record of excellence remains unbroken. - WB Team 2000-08-09
