Ridge 2019 Lytton Springs

2019 Lytton Springs
95 points + Cellar Selection

This densely packed and deeply concentrated blend of Zinfandel with 16% Petite Sirah, 9% Carignan and 2% Mataro is practically legendary. It boasts subtle, complex fruit flavors ranging from raspberry to blackberry to blueberry, while a velvety texture of fine-grained tannins and a subtle raspberry-like tartness give it great structure. Best from 2025 to 2035. —J.G.

2019 Pagani Ranch Zinfandel
93 points

Aromas of wild sage and sunbaked earth lead to a smooth, supple texture and abundant ripe berry flavors in this full-bodied, well-balanced wine. Tart raspberry and rich blackberry mingle with very light smoky notes for good complexity. Best through 2028. —J.G. 

Ridge 2019 Guadagni Zinfandel

2019 Guadagni Zinfandel
93 points + Cellar Selection

Subtle but beautifully concentrated, this firmly structured wine wraps blueberries, raspberries and light baking spices in velvety tannins for a quietly powerful expression that begs for more sips. It contains 24% Petite Sirah. Best from 2024.  —J.G. 

Ridge 2019 Benito Dusi Zinfandel

2019 Benito Dusi Zinfandel
92 points

From vines that reach back nearly a century, this bottling hits the nose with grilled strawberry, cinnamon roll and caramel aromas. It’s a spicy party on the palate, with clove and mace decorating the baked strawberry core. —M.K.

Ridge 2019 Evangelho

2019 Evangelho
91 points

Vivid, juicy and fresh berry flavors fill up this medium-bodied wine made from Carignan, Zinfandel and Mataro (Mourvèdre). It gushes blackberries, raspberries and a dash of smoky oak from the aroma to the finish. Light tannins and good, light acidity give it a nice snap in the texture. —J.G.

2019 Mazzoni Home Ranch
95 Points + Cellar Selection

This deep and brooding wine blended from Zinfandel, Carignan and a pinch of Petite Sirah shows haunting aromas of roasted chestnuts and black olives, while rich blackberry and black-pepper notes dominate the flavors. A thick blanket of very fine tannins gives it a great, tempting mouthfeel and sets it up well for further aging. Best from 2026. —J.G.
