About Ridge Vineyards
One of the premier producers of Cabernet and Zinfandel blends in California, Ridge Vineyards thrives on the hands-off approach of longtime winemaker Paul Draper. These wines are generally single-site bottlings that express the unique characteristics of vineyards in the Santa Cruz Mountains, Alexander Valley and Dry Creek Valley, among others.

Bright yellow. Expressive aromas of pear nectar, honey and lemon curd, with a hint of toasty lees. Rich and fleshy on entry, then firmer in the mid-palate, offering bitter pear skin and peach flavors and subtle notes of citrus pith and candied ginger. Finishes with very good clarity and spicy cut, with the pear note repeating.
