Winemaker's Notes:

"Yields of just over a ton per acre have resulted in one of our mostconcentrated vintages ever. Intense black fruit, a pronounced mineralcomponent, and subtle floral notes, combined with rich tannins, give the 2005potential for greatness. Though it is difficult to identify another vintage ofsimilar characteristics this early on, the exceptional 1996 might comeclosest." (Paul Draper - Winemaker - Ridge Vineyards)
