Estate Merlot, Ridge Vineyards

Key features

Grape VarietyMerlot



StyleRipe & Juicy


RegionSanta Cruz


This driest year on record brought significant water stress to the vineyard. Fortunately, the vines managed to get through it, and harvest, unusually early, was complete by September 20. A six-day fermentation provided elegant extraction. At assemblage, in February, Ridge combined lots with excellent fruit and balanced tannins. After twenty-one months’ aging in american oak, this complex merlot has developed wonderfully. It will be most enjoyable over the next ten years.

Saturated ruby color. Ripe cherry fruit, chaparral, black tea, toasted oak, and clove spice. Well-defined mountain fruit entry, rounded tannins, sweet oak, lengthy finish showing limestone characters.
