Ridge 2017 East Bench Zinfandel
One of the few Ridge Zinfandels that is 100% Zinfandel, East Bench is made from a single vineyard planted back in 1999. The vineyard sits on top of the bench land overlooking Dry Creek Valley from the east, hence the name. It is a gorgeous wine from one of our all-time favourite U.S. producers, all brambly fruit with that minty Zinfandel streak. Lovely on release, but you could cellar it for five years.
20 acre vineyard planted in 1999. Aged 12 months in American oak.
