100% Petite Sirah
This is our thirteenth vintage of Petite Sirah from York Creek. The growing season was cool, and produced the characteristic black pepper spice of the vineyard and the varietal. This is a wine that typically needs several years of age to show its full complexity. The 1983 vintage is round and soft enough to be enjoyable by next spring, and has the structure to continue developing for four or five years.
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
