Vintage Notes

In 1993, despite a late spring, York Creek’s Circle Hill merlot reached ideal ripeness by late September. The vineyard is mature; its depth of fruit and regional spice are pronounced. Aged entirely in two-year-old air-dried american oak, this is a fine example of Circle Hill’s character and quality. early in its aging, the wine was fined with one egg white per barrel. Enjoyable within a year or two of release, it will develop fully over the next eight to ten years. PD (3/95)


Since 1962, Ridge has championed single-vineyard winemaking, exploring California in search of great vineyards where climate, soil and varietal are ideally matched. Fine wine, when made traditionally, is the result of a natural process. Using traditional methods and minimal handling, we strive to produce the highest quality wines from superior and distinctive fruit. We are proud that our three decades are an integral part of California’s winemaking history.
