2020 Lytton Estate Petite Sirah

95 points, Cellar Selection

“Amazing aromas of black figs, black pepper and star anise grab attention with the first whiff, before dense, layered blackberries, dark chocolate and espresso flavors coat the palate. Firm, thick tannins and a superdark color are typical of the grape variety, and bode well for further aging.” –Jim Gordon (November 2023)

2021 Ponzo Zinfandel

95 points, Editors’ Choice

“Vivid raspberry, wild strawberry and spearmint aromas are followed by a bracing, lively palate of raspberries, blackberries, basil and chocolate in this indulgent, mouthcoating wine. Light tannins add to the good balance.” –Jim Gordon (November 2023)

Ridge 2021 Ponzo Zinfandel
Ridge 2021 Pagani Ranch Zinfandel

2021 Pagani Ranch Zinfandel

94 points, Cellar Selection

“Vivid, focused raspberries and red currants light up the aroma of this well-balanced, elegant wine before cooked strawberries and red plums fill the palate. Light toasty, oaky accents of vanilla and chocolate lend a bit of extra interest.” –Jim Gordon (November 2023)
