Everett A. Wise purchased the land in 1875 that is now home to Everett Ridge Vineyards and Winery in Healdsburg California. He brought stones by wagon from the Mill Creek area to build a winery in 1887. At that time it was considered the showplace of its day with two foot thick walls of the highest quality stone masonry trimmed in brick and plantings of fruit trees, walnuts and vineyards of Cabernet Sauvignon. It also boasted a wonderful barn built in 1887 of hand hewn beams and clear cut timbers, a replica of which stands today after a historic renovation in the late nineties. Everett Ridge’s winemaking philosophy is simple: great wines are made in the vineyard. Dick Schultz, our winemaker says, “the goal is to always make a wine that is the purest expression of the fruit. To me, this means conscientious grape growing practices followed by minimal intervention and quality caretaking at the winery. We all know that when fruit is taken care of in the vineyard, it really shows in the finished product.” Read less

Tasting Notes:

This ripe and jammy wine is a classic example of Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel, with intensity and concentration of fruit and tannin that raises it to the next level. Sweet blackberry compote, allspice and cedar reign in the flavor. It is as juicy in taste as it is powerful in body. This wine is ideally accompanied by a sizzling Porterhouse steak hot off the grill with a dab of blue cheese butter. Share only with beloved family or lifelong-friends, as this wine is guaranteed to precipitate stories of escapades from your shared past or compel disclosure of your intimate secrets. Age for 2 to 3 years, then drink with reckless abandon.
