This is our second canyon Road Zinfandel. In 1988, the younger head-pruned vines produced a spicy, accessible wine. We bottled it early to capture the fresh, forward fruit. It is a wine that will show well over the next three or four years and is not intended for long aging. PD (3/90)
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 use of natural yeast, racking to achieve clarity, and filtering only when necessary for stability. Our winery and estate vineyards are located above 2300 feet on Monte Bello Ridge in the Santa Cruz Mountains, overlooking San Francisco and the Bay Area.
