A dense, powerful wine, the 2015 Zinfandel Pagani Ranch exudes concentration in all of its dimensions. Red cherry jam, pomegranate, mint, rose petal and spice meld together in a plush, voluptuous Zinfandel loaded with personality. There is so much to like. The Pagani is the ripest and most overt of the three Zinfandel-based 2015s I tasted. A generous dollop of Alicante contributes to the wine's feel.

Moving to the reds, the 2015 Zinfandel Pagani Ranch (83% Zinfandel, 10% Alicante Bouschet, and 7% Petite Sirah) is a downright slutty wine that's just loaded with sweet fruit and texture. Spiced plums, licorice, baking spices and brambly notes emerge from this ripe, full-bodied, plush Zinfandel that's already impossible to resist. It's not for those craving austerity or tart flavors.

Deep and potently structured, with distinctive spice box and licorice aromas and densely layered flavors of blackberry, cracked pepper and smoky herbes de Provence that finish with big but ripe tannins. Best from 2019 through 2025. 4,500 cases made.
