Fall Has Arrived

As harvest 2016 winds down and the last of the grapes trickle in, we transition to that time of year when the changing season ushers in a whole new palette of rich flavors. The light and bright tastes of summer, where roses and crisp whites ruled the table, have now given way to the hearty and rich flavors of red wine and the season’s slow-and-low-cooked comfort foods.

Allow Ridge to help you jump start the Fall season with a mouth-watering food and wine match of our Pagani Ranch Zinfandel paired with Braised Beef Short Ribs.


A complex wine deserves to be paired with an equally complex dish, which is why we love the Pagani Ranch Zinfandel alongside this tender and savory dish. Treat your palate and don’t delay. Download the recipe and purchase some Pagani today!

2014 Pagani Ranch Zinfandel Accolades

We are thrilled about the positive press that both Antonio Galloni and The California Grapevine have given the 2014 Pagani Ranch Zinfandel.

Vinous Media, 92 Points“…ripe, forward and opulent…I expect the Pagani will offer most of its charms sooner rather than later, which makes it a terrific choice for drinking on the young side…the Pagani is delicious…” -Antonio Galloni

California Grapevine, 91 Points“…blackberry and blueberry fruit aroma…hint of bacon fat; full body; rich, ripe…dark fruit flavors with good depth and concentration…dark chocolate; full tannin; lingering aftertaste…very enjoyable to drink now, though also shows good aging potential.” Very highly recommended.

Winemaker Eric Baugher also has great things to say about the 2014 vintage of Pagani Ranch Zinfandel, so make sure to watch the video above.

Cheers and happy cooking!
