From Ridge's Advance Tasting Program (ATP), a program devoted to single-vineyard wines in produced in very small quantities. An elegant Grenache from a low-yield vintage, with bright fruit, spice and a hint of sweetness. According to the winery: "The growing season opened with a mild March, slowing in the cooler weather of April and May. Late May rains reduced yields in the older blocks, but assured soil moisture through fall. To gain intensity, we dropped almost half the crop on the younger vines, but the forty- and one-hundred-year-old vines required only sunshine, and mowing of the cover crop. The destemmed, uncrushed fruit fermented on its natural yeasts in three- and five-ton fermentors, and was pressed at nine days. A fresh egg white fining has softened the chalky tannins; nineteen months in air-dried american oak barrels has added spice and a hint of sweetness. This is a particularly fine Grenache from a high-quality, low-yield vintage."
