100% Petite Sirah
This limited release for our Advance Tasting Program comes entirely from the steep Devils Hill vineyard on the York Creek Ranch. We have bottled this wine separately since 1971, but only in 1980 we did we first include the Devils Hill designation as part of the label. This excellent wine is quite intense, and, with its considerable tannin, will need five or six years to develop fully.
Founded in 1959, Ridge was one of the first of today’s small, fine California wineries—limiting production to achieve the highest quality. From the beginning, close adherence to traditional winemaking techniques has set Ridge apart. This approach determines our style and includes the use of natural yeast submerged-cap fermentations, aging in small oak cooperage, and careful racking at each transfer to achieve clarity. Located above 2300 feet on Monte Bello Ridge in the Santa Cruz Mountains, our winery overlooks San Francisco Bay
