73% Zinfandel, 17% Carignan, 7% Petite Sirah, 3% Alicante Bouschet The first zinfandel was made in 1964, from a small nineteenth-century vineyard on Monte Bello ridge. Since this time, Ridge has championed single-vineyard winemaking, searching California for those rare vineyards where climate, soil, and varietal are ideally matched. Saturated ruby in colour. Plum and black cherry fruit aromas, mint and gravelly earth. Ripe bramble fruit on entry, balanced acidity and elegant tannins.
