In 2019 the Gonsalves family provided Ridge with access to an additional century-old block of Mataro. A warm but moderate summer produced beautiful, fully ripe grapes. The harvest occurred the first week of September as we were finishing picking at the nearby Evangleho vineyard. Small tanks were used for the natural yeast fermentations and careful monitoring of extraction produced a wine that is rich and balanced. This robust wine can be enjoyed now and over the next ten years. EB (1/21)
