Product description

Black cherry, pepper and chaparral on the nose. Briary red fruit, well defined, chalky tannins and refreshing acidity on the palate. Long sensuous finish. Since 1991, Ridge has made zinfandel from the Pagani vineyard on the western side of Sonoma Valley. The majority of the vineyard was planted ninety to one hundred twenty years ago; portions of it were replanted between 2013—2018. The vineyard is meticulously tended by a quality-conscious family who has worked the land for four generations. An average site would have been abandoned during the thirteen years of Prohibition, or during the Depression. Its long survival is proof of its merit.

Blend: 88% Zinfandel, 9% Petite Sirah, 3% Alicante Bouschet 

Tasting Notes

94 Vinous
The 2016 Zinfandel Pagani Ranch is bright, focused and beautifully perfumed. Bright red cherry, blood orange, pomegranate, mint and rose petal notes are all lifted in this exquisite, finessed Zinfandel. Silky, medium in body and gracious, the 2016 is absolutely sublime. The oak is just a bit pronounced at this stage, but that should not be an issue over time.

93 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2016 Zinfandel Pagani Ranch is excellent, offering up a lavish bouquet of ripe cherries, raspberries and sweet spices. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, with an ample core of succulent, mouthwatering fruit structured around fine-grained, youthfully chewy tannins. Rich and concentrated, it's balanced by mouthwatering acids. It should be well worth following for the next 10-15 years.

93 James Suckling
A charmingly medium-bodied red that is a blend of 88 per cent zinfandel, nine per cent petite sirah and three per cent alicante bouschet. Raspberry and blueberry aromas deliver a fresh impression on the nose that leads to a crisply appealing palate with a brightly resolved finish. Drink or hold.

93 Jeb Dunnuck
Made by John Olney, as well as in the Sonoma facility for the first time, the 2016 Zinfandel Pagani Ranch offers lots of smoke tobacco, dried herbs, and savory black and blue fruits to go with a medium-bodied, nicely balanced style on the palate. With fine tannins and rock-solid acidity, it’s another terrific wine that’s loaded with character. Drink it over the coming 10-15 years.

91 Wine Spectator
Brooding and dense in structure, offering appealing if eccentric black plum, smoky licorice and spice box flavors that finish with lively tannins. Best after 2019.
