88% Zinfandel, 12% Petite Sirah
Dry Creek Valley
At the end of September, we harvested three of the Estate’s six hills. As the wines developed in depth and intensity, they were set aside for the Advance Tasting Program. Combined with late-picked grapes from House Hill, they have become a beautifully-structured wine with concentrated fruit and lively spice. Substantial tannin ensures that this rich, claret-like wine will continue to develop over the next five to eight years.
Since 1962, Ridge has championed single-vineyard winemaking, searching California for those rare vineyards where climate, soil, and varietal are ideally matched. Using traditional methods and minimal handling, we strive to produce exceptional wines from superior and distinctive fruit.
