Ridge Zinfandel Jimsomare 2012 (4.4/5)
One of the few producers to report the full list of the ingredient on the label! Bravo!
Notes: It appears med+ ruby/garnet with very good legs. On the nose it's clean with med+ notes of raspberries, cranberries, rhubarb, some sweet spices and vanilla (oak is moderate and well integrated), a hint of thyme and minerals/wet stones accents. On the palate is dry, with med+ vibrant acidity, medium but very smooth tannins, med+ alcohol, med+ body and a refreshing savoury medium+ finish. Excellent focus and purity of fruit on the mid palate.
