Went into the archives to pull this out:
1. Ridge Zin Jimsomare MonteBelloRidge/SantaCruzMtns (14.5%; 100% Zin; 19 brls; bttld 3/14; Drk: 1/14-1/24-1/26: EB) 2012: Med.dark w/ little bricking; strong bright raspberry/blackberry/Zin/fairly spicy slight c-c/peppery slight earthy some dusty/OV some vanilla/Am.oak/Ridge oak bit perfumed nose; fairly tart/tangy some strong/raspberry/Zin/very spicy light earthy/dusty/OV fairly strong Am.oak/vanilla quite pretty/spicy/raspberry bit complex flavor w/ light brisk tannins; long bright/spicy/raspberry/Zin light dusty/OV stronf vanilla/Ridge oak bit complex finish w/ light brisk/tangy tannins; a pretty enough bright raspberry Zin but not particularly distinctive of SCM nor particularly interesting; lacks the grip & structure of the '19; about the level of the EastBench Zin; rather disappointing & I expected much more.
More oppogertle from TheBloodyPulpit:
1. Since I was so impressed with the '19 Jimsomare, I was compelled to pull an older Jimsomare out. This was a pleasant enough Ridge Zin but I was expecting a lot more. Disappointing.
