2007 Ridge Zinfandel Pagani Ranch - USA, California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Valley (4/16/2011)
14.3% alcohol. 92% Zinfandel, 5% Alicante, 3% Petite. From an exceptional historic vineyard planted in 1902. Theodore Roosevelt becomes the first American President to ride in an automobile when he rides a Columbia Victoria through Hartford, Conn.
Medium ruby red. Bright red fruit aromas. Flavors of Rasberry, black cherry, pepper and spice. Rich, pure, deep. Wonderful mouthfeel. Lingering aftertaste.
This is a great entry historic vineyard. Why? It is very generous and lush. A crowd pleaser. A major attraction is the producers that flock around this gem. Like Ridge, Bedrock and Carlisle. One of my favorite historic vineyards. (92 pts.)
