This wine is a paean to Ridge's devotion to California's viticultural heritage. The 19th-century vineyard site, neighboring Ridge’s Lytton Springs vineyard, was abandoned in the early 20th century. Working with cuttings from four pre-phylloxera vineyards, Ridge has been replanting the site, including the two blocks that provided this wine, planted in 2000. They produced a lean, fragrant red in 2017, a gracious young zinfandel with notes of stewed cherries and shiso.

Blackberry, cocoa licorice on the nose. Full-bodied palate with fig and plum fruit, chalky tannins, mineral and chaparral notes on the finish.
