Zinfandel Chronicles’ annual top 10 list names 2017 Pagani Ranch Zinfandel the #1 wine of the year.
Purple in color. Brilliant nose of jammy red fruits, peach and baking spices. Medium body with mouth watering acidity. Brimming with bright, high toned fruits. Cherries, raspberry liqueur, earth and pepper on the palate. Exceptional length on the finish. The best young Zinfandel I have had from Pagani Ranch and from Ridge for that matter. Just a stunner. Best over the next 4-6 years. 96 points.– Tom Lee
