Zinners and readers alike;
One of my local shops has uncovered a 'special order' of '92 Ridge York Creek zin and has priced it at $19. I know York Creek is typically one of the 'weak sisters' of the Ridge family, but for $19, I think it'll be an interesting experiment.
Storage was very good to excellent, and one the store clerks, who had recently tried it in a tasting, said that for her tastes the 'big, bombastic zin fruit flavors' that she looks for in a zin were gone, but that it wasn't 'bad'. I trust Carmen's judgement and palate, but I'm gonna have try this one myself! TN's to follow.
