2013 Ridge Zinfandel Ponzo

2013 Ridge Zinfandel Ponzo image

Enticing nose of ripe raspberry, plum and black pepper; medium bodied, soft sensuous mouthfeel, cherry pie fruit, mineral notes and firm acid to the elegant, persistent finish.



 



After a dry winter, bud-break came early at this Russian River Valley vineyard. The resulting long season extended hang time, and provided superb flavor. We picked Old Vine block on October 8, and returned October 11 for Front and Back blocks. Following fermentation, we chose the eighty-five-year-old Old Vine block—a mix of ninety percent zinfandel and ten percent petite sirah—and the Front block, for their aromatics and dark fruit. Enjoyable now, this cool-climate zinfandel will be at its best over the next four to five years. JO (9/14)
