Parker Scores Ridge Zinfandels High

The front page of K&L Wines was showing Parker's ratings of Ridge's Zinfandels

  • 2009 Ridge Vineyards "Lytton Springs" Dry Creek Zinfandel
    • 95 Points
  • 2009 Ridge Vineyards "Geyserville" Sonoma Zinfandel
    • 94 Points
  • 2009 Ridge Vineyards "East Bench" Sonoma Zinfandel
    • 92 Points
It's amazing how well Ridge's wines are rated, and they're just up the hill. I'm obviously not enjoying them often enough.


I've been slow to come around to Parker no longer tastes California wines. It turns out that these were actually rated by someone else at Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. Does it make a difference? You tell me.
