When looking for a great Zinfandel to add to our line-up we immediately turned to California's heralded Ridge Winery. Based in the scenic Santa Cruz Mountains, Ridge has been a source for quality California wines decades before many knew the state could even produce wines of caliber. This opulent Zinfandel hails from the Benito Dusi Ranch in Paso Robles. Eighty-year old vines deliver outstanding grapes that result in a rich, raspberry and spice-scented Zinfandel that manages to keep the alcohol in check through its long juicy finish. An outstanding wine for bacon draped cheddar burgers, this spicy red will also work with hearty braises, and sausage-decked pizza pies.
