Vintage Notes

This huge wine could easily have qualified as a late Harvest; but being so typical of the best years on the Ridge, we decided to give title credit to the vineyard. It is spicy and complex with the character of the old vines. The acid is firm and sets a fine, high balance with the alcohol. Though not as tannic as our 70 Cabernet, it is a wine to lay away for ten or twenty years.


Ridge wine is made with an emphasis on quality and naturalness that is rarely attempted. Our grapes are grown in select vineyards (usually identified on the label), where they are left to ripen to peak maturity, often at some loss of quantity. We let the wine settle and age in small barrels, with only rare cellar treatment other than racking. Varieties are not blended unless indicated on the label. Near Black Mountain on Monte Bello Ridge, our main vineyard is 10 miles south of Palo Alto, 15 miles inland from the ocean, and over 2000 feet in elevation.
