Ridge Vineyards East Bench Zinfandel 2016

Ridge has made the East Bench Zinfandel as a single vineyard wine since 2006 and it is one of the few Ridge Zinfandels that is 100% varietal. The vineyard sits high atop the bench land that overlooks Dry Creek Valley from the east. All the grapes are hand harvested from sustainably farmed, estate-grown organic grapes. Matured for 11 months in 100% air-dried American oak barrels (20% new, 40% one and two years old, 40% three and four years old).  Blackberry, cocoa liquorice on the nose. Full-bodied palate with fig and plum fruit, chalky tannins, mineral and chaparral notes on the finish. Approachable as a young wine, this fine zinfandel will be at its best over the next eight years.
