User Reviews for Ridge Zinfandel Spring Mountain District York Creek

Winemaker's Notes:

Flowering and set were delayed by cool spring weather at this Spring Mountain vineyard above Napa Valley. For the second year in a row, the vines produced a full crop, which slowed ripening, and pushed harvest into October. We picked the older vines on Race Track block first, and finished with Kite Hill on October 19, just before the first rains. As usual, we fermented each of the seven parcels separately, on their natural yeasts. Slow, steady fermentations finished in eleven days, on average. Re-tasting after assemblage, we decided to include a significant amount of York Creek petite sirah for greater complexity and firmer structure. The wine was then racked to american oak barrels for twelve months of aging. This York Creek, though rich and structured, is one of the most supple and elegant wines we have made from the vineyard. Enjoyable now, it will continue to develop over the next six to eight years.
