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.

90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2012
Opaque violet color. Cherry-vanilla and blueberry aromas are complicated by notes of mocha, cola and peppery spices. Broad, fleshy and sweet on entry, then tighter in the mid-palate, offering sweet black and blue fruit qualities and a suave floral pastille nuance. Youthfully firm tannins add shape and grip to a long, intensely perfumed finish.
