Wine of the Week
Ridge Ponzo Zinfandel ’16
“The 2016 Zinfandel Ponzo, from a site in the Russian River Valley, is a wine of power, density and impact. Black cherry, blackberry and plum fruit are nicely pushed forward. This is an especially succulent, fleshy style. The nuance and delineation of the best wines in this range isn’t quite there, but the Ponzo makes up for that with its immediacy.”
