Ridge Ponzo Vineyard 2008 Zinfandel Revisited, $26.99, 91 points, was an opaque maroon with a marginal cranberry red migration into the rather broad clear wine ring.
A spice-box bouquet with wild blackberry was more a typically wonderful expression of the Ridge Zinfandel grape.
Medium-plus body was marked by good acidity, supple tannins, and spice enhanced black fruit.
Finished long on the trailing palate with hints of anise and a remarkably well integrated 15.1% alcohol.
There's still a two or three year life expectancy to this wine, despite the label's cut-off date (JMO).
Paired perfectly with my peri-peri rib-eye and spinach pita.
