Majestic Zinfandel

 
Pronounced, complex scent of sun-baked dark fruit (black cherry, plum), lavender, coconut and tobacco. Full, rich and powerful in taste. The firm structure is perfectly supported by fine tannins and lively fresh acidity. Impressively long finish.
 
 

Ridge Vineyards Lytton

Ridge boasts as illustrious a history as any winery in California, but they certainly aren't resting on their laurels. Indeed, a persuasive case could be made that Ridge is currently producing the best wines they've ever made. ' - The Wine Advocate, May 2018

Ridge Vineyards is one of the icons of California wine culture. The domain owes its reputation to exceptional quality single vineyard cabernet and zinfandel. The first and most famous wine is Monte Bello: a 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the vineyard of the same name, first made in 1962.

Geyserville is also one of the estate's historic wines: it has been produced since 1966. The grapes come from the vineyard of the same name, where the first vines were already planted in 1882. There are no fewer than 23 different grapes. Zinfandel is the most important, supplemented with grapes such as carignan, petite sirah, mataro and alicante bouschet. The blend of the wine is therefore different every year.

To let the quality of the vineyards and grapes speak as much as possible, winemaker Paul Draper works according to the principle of 'pre-industrial winemaking'. With this he refers to a non-interventionist way of making wine, inspired by the nineteenth century. So at Ridge no made, embellished industrial wines, but classic terroir and vintage wines.

Thus, Ridge wines are distinguished from many American wines by their elegance, subtlety and complexity. This certainly also applies to the Geyserville, which is round and soft due to the sultry ripe fruit and the beautifully dosed wood aging, but also lively and energetic thanks to the fresh acidity. Preferably drink this wine with a meal, between five and fifteen years after the harvest.
