About Us


Red - GEYSERVILLE, Ridge. Sonoma County, California (Half Bottle)

2016 LYTTON SPRINGS, Ridge. Sonoma County, California (Half Bottle)

Bin: 838
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: 69% Zinfandel, 23% Petite Sirah, 6% Carignan, 2% Mataro (Mourvedre); aged for 14 months in American oak (15% new)
Producer: Paul Draper's Ridge is perhaps the most respected winery in California. Even more so now that the three separate estates (Monte Bello, Geyserville and Lytton Springs) have their own wineries and so operate like a French 'Domaine' rather than a bigger operation
Food Match: Zin is a versatile food match as long as you enjoy big flavours. The Ridge style is more 'structured' and less fruit-emphatic than most - so works brilliantly with anything from 'spag bol' to a mild curry
