2013 Ridge Vineyards "Pagani Ranch" Sonoma Valley Zinfandel

SKU #1217780 Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A Zinfandel dominated blend that incorporates 16% Alicante Bouschet and 7% Petite Sirah, the 2013 Zinfandel Pagani Ranch has a decadent, sweet profile and shows lots of black raspberry, sweet cassis, licorice, candied violets and spice on the nose. Sweet, full-bodied and layered on the palate, it has a kiss of residual sugar, a full texture and a great finish. (JD) Inner quote mark (10/2015)

K&L Notes

From the producer: "Deep garnet color. Aromas of dried fig, oak spice, and clay minerals. Opulent and full bodied with flavors of rich fruit and exotic spices. Moderate acid and a lingering finish. An unusually warm growing season, short on winter rain, worked well at Pagani Ranch. Harvest began October 10, finishing in two days. Fermentations were slow, which meant pressing before dryness to avoid extracting excessive tannins. While in barrel, the wines were tasted frequently to follow their progress as they fermented dry through spring and summer. This deep-colored, fruit-forward zinfandel is approachable now. Richness, balanced by firm acidity, assures its development over the next ten to fifteen years."
