Description

Ridge Vineyards East Bench Zinfandel has been produced as a single vineyard wine since 2006, one of the few Ridge Zinfandels that is 100% Zinfandel. The vineyard sits high atop the bench land that overlooks Dry Creek Valley from the east.

Raspberry, fig with notes of vanilla on the nose. Flavours of plum and black olive give way to well coated tannins and black olive in the lingering finish.

One of the best-loved names (and most distinctive labels) in wine, Ridge has achieved the rare distinction of iconic status not just domestically, in the US, but around the world wherever fine wine is consumed. This is thanks to the thoughtful and consistent application of simple principles: carefully chosen, mature vineyards farmed with great care; minimum-intervention winemaking; production decisions guided by continual blind tasting; and total transparency through ingredient labelling. The result is a range of spectacular and distinctive wines that have made certain vineyards into household names: Geyserville, Lytton Springs and of course Monte Bello. Through pursuit of quality on its own unwavering terms, Ridge has become immune to the whims of fashion, and joined the ranks of the timeless classics.
