The old head-trained Carignane vines on Buchignani Ranch set a very small crop in 2007. Hot summer weather is typical of this part of northern Sonoma County; the grapes ripened quickly, leading to an early-September harvest. The grapes were picked and fermented from five vineyard parcels separately. After a natural-yeast fermentation, we tasted the individual lots, selecting two blocks, House and Top, for Ridge's Advance Tasting Program wine. Because of 2007's low yields, this is an unusually rich and concentrated Carignane. It aged for twelve months in air-dried American oak (10% new, 20% one and two years old, 70% three and four years old). Delightful now, this exceptional Carignane will continue to develop over the next four or five years.
