San Louis Obispo County
The stressed vines on the Dusi Ranch North Block ripened fully by late August – our first fruit harvested in the ’93 vintage. The rest of the grapes matured within two weeks. The majority were fermented submerged in their juice, for gentle extraction. After a month in new American oak, the wine was racked to three-year old barrels for a year’s aging. Well structured, with lively spice and rich berry fruit, this lovely wine will be enjoyable by fall, and continue to develop over the next five years.
Since 1962, Ridge has championed single-vineyard winemaking, exploring California in search of those rare sites where climate, soil, and varietal are ideally matched. Our aim is to guide the natural process; using traditional methods and minimal handling, we strive to produce the highest quality wines from superior and distinctive fruit.
