GREAT article today from Geoff Last (a longtime Calgary wine merchant and writer, and a regular contributor to City Palate magazine and other publications) about Zinfandel entitled “Edgy Zinfandel Rocks On.”
Why do I like this article so much? Because it starts like this, “If I were to cast California Zinfandel as a rock band, I might equate it to a group like the Clash …”
Plus, Mr. Last includes a very fine review of our East Bench offering, and also writes lines like, “In my quarter of a century in the wine business, I have never had a bad wine from Ridge …”
But mainly, I like this article because it mentions us and The Clash together.
Which makes it a punky kind of day for Ridge! Because this article comes right on the heels of a FANTASTIC tweet that came across the wires today from our good friend Wayne at the very excellent wine blog A Long Pour:
wkelterer: Fugazi is the @RidgeVineyards of indie rock. Still the coolest thing out there after all these years of inspiring others!

Nice! Ridge Vineyards, The Clash, Fugazi, and You.
