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.

(includes 14% alicante bouschet, 4% petite sirah and 2% carignane): Inky ruby. Deeply pitched aromas of black and blue fruits, vanilla bean and cola, with floral and spice accents adding complexity and lift. Broad, pliant and juicy in the mouth, offering lush blackberry and mulberry flavors and a hint of cracked pepper. Leaves a spicy note behind on the long, licorice-tinged finish. This is a baby.
