Vintage Notes

These eighty-year-old vines are from the oldest parcel on the Cooley family ranch. The family’s commitment to maintaining these venerable vines through Prohibition and the Depression has made it possible for us to enjoy today the distinctive qualities unique to very old carignan. As in 1994, the warm microclimate of this valley near the Sonoma/ Mendocino line proved ideal; the grapes ripened beautifully, and the wine’s sweet, red berry fruit is stunning. Appealing now, this fine wine will be at its best over the next four or five years. PD (12/96)

History

Since 1962, Ridge has championed single-vineyard winemaking, searching California for those rare vineyards where climate, soil, and varietal are ideally matched. Fine wine, when made traditionally, is the result of a natural process. Ridge’s aim is to implement that process; using traditional methods and minimal handling, we strive to produce exceptional wines from superior and distinctive fruit.
