2014 RIDGE ZINFANDELS

Two new 2014 Ridge Zinfandels, each from very different growing areas, have just been rleased. Both are 100% Zinfandel. The 2014 Ridge Zinfandel ‘East Bench’ comes from the top of a hill bordering both Alexander Valley and Dry Creek Valley, north of Healdsburg. The 2014 Ridge Zinfandel ‘Benito Dusi Ranch’ comes from this famous vineyard planted in 1922, and still farmed by the same family. Both wines exhibit the classic raspberry, pepper, and violets of the variety, but the wine from Paso Robles shows more black cherry and plum fruit. Both are early drinkers and should make for great barbecuing during the summer months.

2014 PETIT CLOS – CLOS HENRI

The Bourgeois family of Sancerre fame began a project called Clos Henri, to capture the zest and similarity to the Loire Valley of New Zealand wines. The fruit from the younger vines is bottled as Petit Clos, and represents good value.
The 2014 Petit Clos Sauvignon Blanc shows chalky and flinty mineral notes, and lots of citrus and white flower aromas. It is tangy, round, super fruity, and very easy to drink. The 2014 Petit Clos Pinot Noir has a floral aroma of lavender and dried rose petal, with lots of red berry fruits. It is rich with supple tannins, a tangy cherry flavor, and a lightly wooded finish.
