This wine grows at the first site Jay Heminway planted at his property in the eastern hills of Napa Valley, the vines replanted in the mid-90s after the original vineyard succumbed to phylloxera. The plant material came from Trentadue Ranch, from an old block that Ridge uses for Geyserville, so the cuttings included a bit of petite sirah, syrah, carignan, grenache and some Italian varieties. The 2014 is clean and direct in its raspberry ripeness, darkened and softened by oak aging. There’s a comforting feel to the raspy fruit tannins, lasting on gentle minerality and spice. This is built for roast venison or lamb.
Precise and well-built, with briary dark berry aromas and a lively core of acidity and tannins framed by notes of black cherry, licorice and peppered herb. Drink now through 2024. 1,274 cases made.
