90 Wine Advocate (10/29/2015) "Made from 100% Zinfandel, the 2013 Zinfandel East Bench is a concentrated, if not backwards, effort that has lots of plum and currant fruits, licorice, incense, and spice cake aromas and flavors. Medium to full-bodied, juicy, lively and tannic, I'd like some more mid-palate flesh, but it's still a beautiful bottle of wine that will evolve for a decade."
91 Vinous, Antonio Galloni (7/2015) "Black cherry, plum, smoke, dark spices and licorice are some of the notes that inform the Ridge's 2013 Zinfandel East Bench. The 2013 possesses striking focus and salinity that play off the wine's powerful yet mysterious personality. The darker side of Zinfandel comes through on the incisive finish. This is another wonderfully complex wine from Ridge."
90 Our Score (6/2015) Ridge's East Bench bottling is 100% Zinfandel that comes from a single site overlooking Sonoma's Dry Creek Valley. As always, it offers exceptional quality that outperforms its price. The style here is about freshness and purity, forgoing the jammy qualities associated with many Zins. A fruit forward attack of mixed red and blue berries lead the way followed by sweet, but subtle, oak spices of vanilla and coconut. The harmonious flavors are beautifully in balance with a soft and round texture that is refined and elegant.

We are in Westridge Court, at the intersection of Rt. 59 and Aurora Avenue. Our center is on the east side of Rt. 59 on the part of the center that faces Aurora Avenue.

Our store is on Old Skokie Road which is the frontage road on the west side of Rt. 41. We are 400 yards south of Deerfield Rd/Central Avenue. If you know where Williams Ski & Patio or Rick's Auto Body are located, we're on the same street; just about a few hundred yards to the south. If you are not familiar with the area, best to use GPS or some online directions because our store is a bit tricky to find!

We're on Elston Avenue, just off of the Kennedy Expressway (I-90/94). Take the North Avenue exit and head east. Elston Avenue is the first stoplight that you'll come to. Turn left on Elston and drive for just over a quarter mile. We'll be on the left side of the road just after the rail overpass. Parking is on-street, right in front of the store!
