57% Zinfandel, 33% Petite Sirah, 10% Carignane
Spring Mountain, Napa County
In this vintage the few acres of old vines on Langtry Road produced ten barrels of excellent wine. Over seventy years ago the vineyard blend of Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, and Carignane was proven by the small wineries of the pre-prohibition era to be the best combination for making a complex, long-aging Claret. The 1980 Langtry should be laid down for at least three to four years to begin to develop more fully. PD (6/82)
Begun in 1959, Ridge was one of the first of today’s chateau-size California wineries, that is, those that attempt only the highest quality at the quantity levels of the classified chateaux (up to 40,000 cases). All the wines are aged in small oak cooperage with the majority receiving no cellar treatment other than racking. Located above Santa Cruz Mountains, our winery and main vineyards overlook San Francisco Bay.
