1984 Ridge Lytton Springs Zinfandel
11/11/09-The knitters were hosted by Tim and Jane Curtis and enjoyed a magnificent example of a very well made 1984 zinfandel. Ridge winemaker Paul Draper really nailed this wine. The zinfandel showed only slight signs of browning and most participants agreed that except for the color, it was perceived as a fairly young wine. Most members had second helpings and some chose the wine over 6 younger wines for their dinner wine.
