Ridge Paso Robles 2009 Zinfandel

Ridge Paso Robles 2009 Zinfandel, $25.49-$29.99, 91 points, has a bright and lovely magenta hue, the aroma is an amazing brown sugar-cinnamon, clove, and plum, the medium body carries gentle hints of black bramble fruit, but culminates in a long finish, though not overwhelmingly so, of white pepper with hints of cayenne. This is more of a quaffing wine than the Pagani Ranch and less complex, easier drinking, yet still delicious, and at a better buy, having a comparable QPR.
The Wine-maker rightly writes about the balanced sweetness/acidity, and recommends drinking the Paso Robles 2009 Zinfandel over the next five years.
