2008 Ridge Vineyards "York Creek" Napa Valley Zinfandel

SKU #1061159 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Another iconic site from Ridge, the 2008 Zinfandel York Creek (79% Zinfandel and 21% Petite Sirah, tipping the scales at 14.9% alcohol) displays plenty of boysenberry, blueberry and black cherry fruit notes, a healthy dark ruby/purple color similar to the other wines, but more earth, tannin, structure and grip. This is not as forward and elegant as the Lytton Springs, nor as exuberant and flamboyant as the Pagani Ranch. It is almost a Zinfandel with a Cabernet Sauvignon soul and structure.

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Glass-staining ruby. Pungent, expressive aromas of blackberry, cherry pit, licorice and oak spices, with a hint of dried flowers. Juicy and focused but youthfully gripping, with a bitter quality to the distinctly ripe flavors of cherry compote, dark berries and licorice. The bitter cherry and oak spice notes repeating on the punchy finish. I'll bet that some bottle aging will bring more finesse. There's 21% Petite Sirah in this wine and it shows today. Inner quote mark (5/2011)

The 08 York Creek from Ridge is a shining example of what Napa fruit can bring to a Zin. Dark luscious blackberry and black cherry fruit with notes of espresso and Dutch coco make up a full pallet. There is 22% worth of Petite Syrah lends great structure and inky depth to this wine. Drinking well now at our last tasting, this wine will certainly continue to evolve with 3 to 5 years of bottle age.
Drink from 2010 to 2015
