Availability: In stock

OVER THE RIDGE, AND THROUGH THE WOODS

Better drinking through radical transparency. Ridge is one of very few vineyards that labels their ingredients on each bottle; that would be grapes, oak barrel, tannins, and the deftest hand of sulfur in this case. They eschew the other 72 additives permissible in modern American winemaking (looking at you 'Mega-Purple'(TM). 

+ GRAPES:  Organic. 90% Zinfandel, 5% Alicante Bouschet, 5% Petite Sirah from the single-vineyard site of Pagani Ranch in Sonoma, California.

+ PROFILE:  Nose of jammy blueberry, red cherry and pepper. Lively acidity and structure give this wine a full mouthfeel with notes of raspberry, mineral and dark chocolate with a lingering finish. 95 points from Vinous media. 

+ FUNDAMENTALS:  Hand-harvested, destemmed. Wild yeast fermentation that undergoes full, natural malolactic fermentation to soften things out. Light filtration. Low sulfur. 14.6% ABV.
