100% Petite Sirah
This warm year fully matured the three Petite Sirah Vineyards on the York Creek Ranch. One produced abundant yields, which lent fruit and elegance to the depth and firm tannin of the other two. Eighteen months in small cooperage began the aging process, and a moderate fining improved balance and gave definition. Though relatively approachable, this excellent wine should be laid down for five to six 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
