Ridge Vineyards

Ridge Vineyards

Die Geschichte des Weinguts Ridge geht zurück bis zum Jahre 1885. Osea Perrone kaufte Land und baute das Landhaus, ließ den Keller in den angrenzenden Fels hauen, legte Terrassen in den Weinbergen an und 1892 wurde der erste Jahrgang veröffentlicht und vermarktet. Danach geriet das Weingut nach und nach in Vergessenheit, bis es in den 40er Jahren des 20sten Jahrhunderts wiederentdeckt und neu belebt wurde. Viele Flächen wurden von den neuen Besitzern mit Cabernet Sauvignon bepflanzt, so auch der spektakuläre Monte Bello. In den 60er Jahren wurde das Weingut um die Rebflächen in Lytton Springs erweitert, wo Zinfandel kultiviert wird. Merlot und Chardonnay, aber auch Rebsorten im Rhône-Stil runden das Portfolio ab. Gearbeitet wird bei Ridge Vineyards traditionell, man lässt der Natur weitestgehend freien Lauf, es sei denn ein Eingreifen wird zwingend nötig. Der Verzicht auf zu viel Technologie, das Alter der Reben und die Erfahrung aller Beteiligten macht die Weine von Ridge zu einem einzigartigen, komplexen Trinkerlebnis.

94 Punkte Vinous für den Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 Estate Santa Cruz MountainsVerkostungsnotiz von Antonio Galloni von September 2020:

Ridge’s 2017 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is a fabulous choice for readers who want a Monte Bello fix now, without having to wait. Supple, radiant and silky, with tremendous balance, the 2017 is just flat-out delicious and utterly irresistible. Dark red cherry/plum fruit, mocha, licorice, sweet tobacco and a kick of American oak build as this sumptuous Cabernet Sauvignon shows its allure. The 2017 is an outrageously beautiful wine. Don’t miss it.

 
94 Punkte vom Wine Advocate für den Ridge Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2017Erin Brooks im Februar 2021:

“The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Monte Bello Vineyard is blended with 21% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. The nose is still tightly wound, taking plenty of air to reveal deep aromas of cassis, tobacco, licorice and coffee with top notes of violet and graphite. The palate is full-bodied and powerful, with a firm grain and concentrated fruits, and it finishes very long, layered and uplifted. This will require more time in bottle than the Klein Cabernet.” -Erin Brooks (February 2021)

 
93 Punkte von Jeb Dunnuck für den The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate showed beautifully, with gorgeous notes of cassis, crushed violets, graphite, and lead pencil all emerging from the glass. Showing plenty of richness and depth, medium to full body, good acidity, and plenty of firm tannins, it’s not a blockbuster, but it has the balance and class to evolve for 15 years or more. The blend is 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Petit Verdot.

94 Sucklingpunkte für denJames Suckling im Dezember 2019

This blend of 74% zinfandel, 15% petite sirah, 9% carignane and 2% mataro has that signature Ridge freshness and definition with such reliable focus on fruit. Aromas of dried plums, dry roasted spices, red flowers and leaves lead to a palate that has such succulent, rich red berries and plums. So lively and attractive. Drink or hold.

 
 

94 Punkte vom Vinous-Team für den Ridge Lytton Springs 2017 Zinfandel Sonoma County Dry Creek ValleyVerkostungsnotiz von Antonio Galloni von Oktober 2019:

Ridge's 2017 Lytton Springs opens up beautifully. with bright acids that drive a whole range of red/purplish fruit intermingled with floral notes. Creamy and ample in feel. the 2017 boasts superb balance and pedigree. Readers lucky enough to owe it should plan on cellaring it for at least a few years.

94 Punkte Vinous für den Ridge Chardonnay 2017 Estate Santa Cruz MountainsVerkostungsnotiz von Antonio Galloni von Juni 2019:

The 2017 Chardonnay Estate is soft. silky and exceptionally polished. White flowers. mint. orchard fruit. lemon confit and white pepper give the 2017 striking aromatic top notes that add nuance to the delicate. beautifully layered fruit. This understated Chardonnay is all class. The Estate represents 85% of Ridge's production in 2017. while the remaining 15% will be bottled as Monte Bello.



Ridge Chardonnay Estate 2017 Santa Cruz MountainsJebDunnuck.com (June 2019): 94 Points

“The 2017 Chardonnay Estate has a Burgundian reductive quality as well as first-rate notes of caramelized orchard fruits. crushed rock. and subtle toasty. nutty notes. Rich. medium to full-bodied. with bright acidity. it has beautiful mid-palate depth. and well as the class and structure to keep for 15+ years. This is beautifully done.”

 


 

Winemaker Tasting Note:
Sun-bleached straw color. Pineapple. melon. honeysuckle. and citrus. Appealing fruit entry. refreshing acidity. with an elegant texture. Long. smooth finish. EB (12/18)
100% Chardonnay

A cold winter delayed bud-break. Late spring rain disrupted bloom. reducing yields by a quarter. Summer was warm at times. but mostly foggy and cool. This slowed ripening which produced greater flavor and firmer acidity. We picked nine parcels in early September. and barrel fermented each separately. The most elegant. that showed the finest fruit. were selected for this superb chardonnay. It can be enjoyed now.
