STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
Ridge is arguably the most famous producer of top Zinfandel in the USA. Founded in 1962 in the Santa Cruz mountains in California. Paul Drapper head winemaker is legendary in the world of wine and has attracted a huge amount of plaudits including ‘top 5 most admired winemakers in the world’ Decanter poll. Powerful, thrilling red for those who enjoy opulence and indulgence.
Robert parker says: "The nose is lush and open, with aromas of aniseed, red and blue berries, blood orange and earth plus touches of tobacco leaf and dried flowers. The medium-bodied palate combines intense, powerful flavours with a more ethereal, silty structure, and it finishes with loads of juicy layers. It's stunning straight from bottle but will have more to give with time in the cellar."
