More jimosnack from TheBloodyPulpit:
1. Typical my favorite Ridge Zin is the Lytton. Because of its purity of Zin fruit and intense spiciness. Sometimes the Jimsomare is my favorite, though. It certainly is in the case of the 2020 Zins. This is an intense/structured Zin w/ loads of spiciness and speaks of the SantaCruzMtns. A spectacular Zin available only the the 3-club members.
