100% Petite Sirah
From the outset, this petite sirah has shown more intense fruit than is usual for the varietal. That fruit, combined with well-moderated oak and York Creek’s typical black pepper spice, has given us one of the loveliest wines of the vintage. Regrettably, as in 1988, quantities are exceedingly limited. Despite its full flavors and tannins, the wine is enjoyable now. It will develop further 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
