When it comes to Red Zinfandel, Ridge Vineyards just crushes it. This is a producer I've adored my entire wine career, and I was incredibly happy when the wines recently became available through a new distributor. Why? Because this will be the first time I've ever gotten any Pagani Ranch, a wine I view as the crown jewel of Ridge's Zinfandel bottlings.

This heritage site was planted 120 years ago, and thankfully, it survived Prohibition. Many growers ripped up their vines, but this meritorious vineyard in the Sonoma Valley didn't go the chopping block. Pagani Ranch is a cool site, and it is always one of the last vineyards to be harvested. It's long, cool ripening results in a wine with fine and detailed flavors.

As you was above, everybody and their brother rated this one 95+ points. After enjoying a bottle on Easter Sunday with some ribeyes, I can attest to the quality of this wine. Packed with super rich flavors of briary dark berries, anise, dried herbs, and exotic spices, this full-bodied, supple, and pleasure packed red will offer great drinking over the next 7 to 8 years.

If you need reassurance about how good this is and how good our pricing is, look it up online. We were lucky to score 7 cases of this one. That inventory will be gone in no time.
