2018 Ridge Vineyards "Pagani Ranch" Sonoma Valley Zinfandel

SKU #1494449 95 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark A rocking Zinfandel from Sonoma County, the 2018 Zinfandel Pagani Ranch offers a more ruby/plum color to go with a great nose of spice red and black fruits, sandalwood, chocolate, and new leather. This spicy, medium to full-bodied, incredibly seamless 2018 has fabulous tannins, plenty of mid-palate depth, and a great finish. It's every bit as profound as the 2017, if not better. It's going to keep for 10-12 years. Inner quote mark (8/2020)

Outer quote mark The 2018 Zinfandel Pagani Ranch is superb. A burst of sweet red/purplish fruit, exotic spice, flowers and blood orange fleshes out in a Zinfandel of tremendous class. The Pagani has a level of textural breadth and resonance that separates it from most wines in this range. It also has a bit more new oak than the other wines here, but that should not be an issue in time. Bold, creamy and sensual, the Pagani just hits all the right notes. I wouldn’t touch a bottle anytime soon. Readers who can find it will own a small piece of history, as Pagani is one of the most pedigreed vineyard sites in the United States. The blend is 84% Zinfandel, 9% Alicante Bouschet and 7% Petite Sirah. (AG) Inner quote mark (9/2020)

Always a favorite of mine from Ridge, the Pagani bottling is just an all time classic and the 2018 edition is simply stunning! The wine's perfume literally jumps from the glass, the first time I uncorked a bottle to taste I could smell the aromas of liquored raspberries, bramble fruit, exotic spice and dried flowers from arms length as I poured a glass! On the palate the wine is just as explosive and effusive, packed with deliciously pure, ripe, spiced berry fruits, sweet oak tones and hot stone. Mouth-filling and lush, but no sense of over-ripeness, the structure is ample but not at all intrusive and the wine can be drunk upon release and probably for a decade plus. A remarkable wine that packs in so much exotic ripeness and power but maintains beautiful freshness and lift. The modest price point belies it's quality and pedigree...but once it's in your glass there's no denying it's world-class status.
