Ridge Paso Robles Zinfandel 2006

I like Ridge a lot - but generally less so for what they are famous for. I prefer their chards and cabs over their zins, but since I was in California with access to some of their more obscure bottlings, I thought I'd give zin another chance. I also heard good things about Paso Robles zins....

The nose was a dusty, brambly red fruit. The palate was pepper, high in acid, and with butterscotch berries. Smooth easy drinking with some nice depth that zin lovers will probably enjoy. However, this still doesn't do it for me as anything special - at least it is restrained and thoughtful.

Very Good
$30 at Andronico's
