STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
One of the oldest wine producers in California, Ridge make wonderfully expressive wines. The vines in East Bench were planted in 2000 and 2001. The vineyard is ideal for growing Zinfandel with its ancient soils and consistent climate.
A medium to full-bodied wine, the aromas are of blackberry, cherry, liquorice and spice. The velvety tannins are well balanced with plenty of juicy fruit. This is already delicious but still quite young.
