Vintage Notes

The very warm harvest temperatures typical of Napa Valley in 1985 were moderated by the altitude of the Zinfandel vineyards on the York Creek Ranch. The vines’ full maturity gave us abundant varietal friut. The proportion of new oak and nineteen months in small cooperage contributed a sophisticated character. This excellent wine seems more approachable than most recent York Creek vintages, yet the structure clarly promises a wine that will develop more fully with five or six years of bottle age. PD (8/86)


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.
