Rhône-style reds - EAST BENCH ZINFANDEL, Ridge. Dry Creek Valley, California

Sorry This bottle is currently not available.

2014 Now finished: LYTTON SPRINGS, Ridge. Dry Creek Valley, California


Bin: 592
Alcohol Percentage: 14.4%
Area: A vineyard of old bush vines in Dry Creek, Sonoma, just north of Healdsburg; cultivated and marketed by Ridge since 1972. There's an ideal combination of cool, foggy mornings and sunny afternoons, together with gravelly clay soils which retain moisture and help the grapes ripen slowly. All this reins in the otherwise over-prolific Zinfandel vines
Grape Variety: 70% Zinfandel, 21% Petite Sirah, 6% Carignan, 3% Mataro; aged for 14 months in American oak (20% new)
Producer: Paul Draper's Ridge is perhaps the most respected winery in California. Even more so now that the three separate estates (Montebello, Geyserville and Lytton Springs) have their own wineries and so operate like a French 'Domaine' rather than a bigger operation
Cellar Potential: Lytton Spings is drinkable young but always lasts 15 years without fuss
Old Bridge Rating: Pure pleasure
