2013 Ridge Zinfandel East Bench

2013 Ridge Zinfandel East Bench image

Ripe jammy raspberry fruit with pepper, eucalyptus and sweet toasted oak. Rich brambly fruit on the palate, sensuous texture and a long layered finish.



 



The growing season here began with unusually warm weather, and the vines responded with a full crop. Though we dropped fruit in July for optimum ripeness, we had record yields. After fermentation, we chose five of the seven parcels, combined them, and racked to barrel for twelve months’ aging. An excellent example of both varietal and site, this wine exhibits the red fruit and peppery flavors characteristic of Dry Creek zinfandels. Enjoyable now, it will evolve fully over the next five years. JO (10/14)
