100% Petite Sirah
In 1986, the Dynamite Hill and Lake vineyards at York Creek produced more intense, spicy Petite Sirah fruit than usual. The tannins are round and quite forgiving, making this lovely wine more enjoyable in its youth than most vintages. Fine balance contributes to its approachability, and assures its development over the next eight to ten 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
