Thanks for the podcast, Tim. Ridge is one of my all-time favorite California Zins … excellent stuff.
Hi Tim, I’m new to the wine world and to the world of ipod & podcasts. I’ve been enjoying some of your back “issues”, plus look forward to your new year. Keep up the good work.
Lyle Boerchers says
Great podcast! I am a huge fan of all Ridge wines and I think that they are world class wines.
Stacy Doran says
I listened to your show for the first time last night and was very impressed. We are new to Ridge wines – somehow our paths have never crossed. We tried the Zin you recommeded tonight and were bowled over. Amazing! Thanks for the tip and keep up the good work. I can’t wait for the next show.
Glad you liked the Trinitas! Reminder: the ZAP festival, Zinfandel Advocates and Producers is 1/28/06 in San Francisco. Don’t know if you can make it out, but it’s a wonderful event.
