More About This Wine
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.
93-96 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 1998
Saturated black-ruby. Perfumed, enticing aromas of cassis, black raspberry, violet, melted toffee and lead pencil. Big, lush and sweet, with nicely integrated acidity and firm underlying structure. Plummy and very deep. Finishes with strong but round tannins that are currently buried in fruit. A wonderfully ripe, fully expressive vintage for this wine.
