Rich ruby red color. Vibrant raspberry and blueberry on the nose with hints of green olive, clove, and iron. Nicely balanced acidity and powerful red berry fruit on the palate.
Ridge has a long history producing wine from this Spanish grape variety. This is our first vintage from Sandy Lane, which is within a few miles of some of our past, most favorite vines. These century old vines grow in deep sandy soil. We picked early in 2018 and fermented in small tanks with gentle extraction, making a balanced wine. It will be most enjoyable over the next ten years.
