100% Cabernet Franc
These grapes ripened fully in early October. The majority were fermented with a large proportion of whole clusters, which accentuates fruit and limits extraction of tannins. Bottled as a 100% varietal, it beautifully demonstrates the character of cabernet franc. This complex wine is enjoyable now, yet has the firm backbone to develop further over the next six to eight years. PD (6/91)
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-including use of natural yeasts in extended fermentations and careful racking for clarity-have set Ridge apart. Located above 2300 feet on Monte Bello Ridge in the Santa Cruz Mountains, our winery and main vineyards overlook San Francisco Bay.
