100% Petite Sirah
This intense wine comes from Devils Hill at York Creek and includes the oldest vines on the ranch. As we have since 1971, we make it with full extraction of the considerable tannins. Spicy, robust, and quite concentrated, it will need several years to begin to soften, developing over the next ten or twenty.
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
