Tasting Note                         

89     2000 Ridge Paso Robles Zin     7/26/03($20)

Candy apple, plum, briar and other Zin spices. Fine fruit to acid balance. Rich but could use more intensity. Does possess some of that multilayered, complex, yeasty Dusi Ranch character, but could use more. A fine effort for the vintage. With a year or so of bottle age this should become riper and more giving.
