Tasted on two different occasions, and stood out on both. When tasted against two Ridge Sonoma Zins, the '98 Sonoma Station and Lytton Springs, it seemed at this point the most forward and pleasing of the three wines. Classic Ridge Paso Robles nose of over-ripe plums, strawberries, and spice, with a touch of chocolate. Lucious, vanilla-tinged finish. Soft, almost oily mouth feel. Excellent finish, and held up to chocolate, too! Ready to drink now. - WB Team 2000-05-03
