Vintage Notes

In this stressed year these mountain vineyards produced a rich, earthy wine that should rival in complexity our finest zinfandels. The considerable tannin will begin to soften somewhat by fall, but the wine should continue to develop with three to five years of bottle age. PD (12/78)


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.
