About This Wine:
The 2017 “Winemaker’s Reserve” Zinfandel from West Ridge just may be the perfect food wine on those occasions when you’ve invited friends over for a smorgasbord of comfort foods. We’re talking grilled burgers… pepperoni pizza… rigatoni Bolognese. All of them pair perfectly with the West Ridge Zin.
The “Winemaker’s Reserve” designation comes from the great care that was taken in every step of the winemaking process. It started in the vineyard, which is adjacent to one of the Paso Robles region’s most acclaimed vineyards (Turley). It’s a dry-farmed site, which helps to produce grapes of great flavor intensity. Only the best grapes are selected for the “Winemaker’s Reserve.”
Also contributing to the quality quotient was the aging regimen selected by the West Ridge winemaker — a mix of American and French oak barrels. The result is a beautifully hued wine with a fruit bowl of flavors and great affinity for food.
