Vintage Notes

In Monte Bello’s cool growing region, a cool growing season can cause zinfandel to ripen less evenly than usual. Jimsomare’s three acres of 19th-century vines were selectively harvested four times over a five-week period to assure full maturity. The firm acid and intense varietal fruit of the less ripe last picked grapes complement the richness of those harvested earlier. This fine wine needs a year or two in bottle to begin to soften, and will develop fully by the turn of the century.


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
