A dark crimson red core with a purplish rim. The bouquet shows aromas of cassis, blueberry, cola, liquorice, and sweet oak. Ripe blackberry fruit on the palate, full bodied, rich texture, exotic spice roasted coffee, and toasted oak notes. Complex, long, sensuous on the finish.

That was the year three Stanford scientists pooled their money to purchase the estate. The 1960’s were an important decade for Ridge Vineyards. Ridge Vineyards shifted to 100% organic farming techniques by 1999. Much of the success for the wines of Ridge Vineyards is due to their terroir.
