Ridge Ponzo Vineyards Russian River Valley 2007 Zinfandel, Russian River Valley, California, Est. Price: $29.99
Ridge produces so many amazing Zinfandels and this wine is a perfect example. Russian River Valley is a sub-AVA in a more familiar wine region – Sonoma. Aromas are raspberry, guava and pepper – flavors are rich red fruit, oak, mineral and a great finish. Pair with pork on the BBQ, burgers, and pizza.
