2012 Ridge Vineyards "Pagani Ranch" Sonoma Valley Zinfandel

SKU #1177445 91 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark Deeply fruited and juicy right from the first with a strong blackberry bias and a nice dollop of sympathetic oak running its length, the Pagani Ranch bottling is a bit riper in tone than its Lytton Springs partner, but it is no less neatly balanced and shows a very professional winemaking hand. We like its generosity and its rich, easy-to-access fruit, but for all of its open appeals, it is so well put together that it will only get better and better with age. *Two Stars* Inner quote mark (1/2015)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2012 Zinfandel Pagani Ranch wraps around the palate with silky, perfumed fruit and tons of varietal character. The late harvest in this cool, Sonoma Valley site yielded a ripe, intensely aromatic Zinfandel with notable persistence and sweet, suave tannins. As opposed to many other Ridge's other Sonoma wines, Pagani Ranch is predominantly Zinfandel, and that is exactly what comes through. (AG) 91+ Inner quote mark (7/2014)

K&L Notes

90% Zinfandel with 9% Alicanté Bouschet and 1% Mataro/Mourvèdre. Pagani Ranch has been an important Zinfandel in the Ridge lineup since the first bottling in 1991. The Pagani property, on the east-facing side of Sonoma Valley, features low-yielding vines which are almost entirely over 100 years old (although a large section was replanted recently). It has been tended by the same quality-conscious family for four generations.
