Ratings & Reviews

91-93 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2017 Vintage):
"Tasted from barrel, the 2017 Zinfandel Paso Robles is also very promising, offering up youthful primary aromas of ripe cherries and currants. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, supple and succulent, with melting tannins and a pure, juicy, fruit-driven profile. In 2017, Ridge was able to pick their entire block of the Benito Dusi vineyard in one go, meaning that all the grapes arrived at the Monte Bello winery the day that they were harvested, and that will also be the practice going forward. While the Paso Zinfandel is never the most complex of Ridge's Zinfandels, it's inordinately appealing for its generous expression of Zinfandel fruit." - William Kelley (31st May 2018)

92 Points - Vinous (2017 Vintage):
"The 2017 Paso Robles Zinfandel is super-expressive from the outset. A burst of aromatic intensity and finesse is hugely enticing. Sweet floral notes and bright red/purplish berry fruit are nicely pushed forward, with a kick of Paso Robles acidity that adds character. " Antonio Galloni - (Oct 2019)

92 Points - Jeb Dunnuck (2017 Vintage):
"The 2017 Zinfandel Paso Robles is a bigger, richer wine compared to the Dry Creek Release, and its deep purple color is followed by tons of sweet blueberry, mulberry, brambly herbs, and cigar wrapper notes. Rich, medium to full-bodied, sweetly fruited, and with ripe tannins, this is one sexy Zinfandel that can be drunk today or cellared for 10-15 years." - Jeb Dunnuck (6/14/2019)

91 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine (2017 Vintage):
"Briary and rustic yet appealing for the deep blackberry, mineral and savory underbrush accents that build toward broad-shouldered tannins. Best from 2021 through 2027. 3,500 cases made." - TF (Issue Jun 30, 2019)
