New Ridge Releases!

Ridge Fall Release:
We look forward to the Fall Ridge release every year along along with our long time favorites Ridge Lytton Springs and Lytton Estate Petit Sirah we also get the new vintage of Ridge Montello.

2015 Ridge Lytton Estate Petite Sirah...$35.99
The 2015 Petite Sirah Lytton Estate is all class. There is plenty of depth to the inky blue and purplish Petite fruit, while the tannins are remarkably polished for a young Dry Creek Petite. Hints of lavender, tobacco, mint, smoke and crème de cassis develop in the glass, adding further shades of complexity. This clay-rich site seems to be especially well suited to Petite. Whole berry fermentation and gentle extractions yield and especially refined Petite. The 2015 is another drop-dead gorgeous wine from Ridge.

One size does not fit all....

2015 Ridge Lytton Springs....$21.99 / 375ml
2015 Ridge Lytton Springs....$39.99 / 750ml

2015 Ridge Lytton Springs....$79.99 Magnum
2015 Ridge Lytton Springs....$199.99 3 Liter
The 2015 Lytton Springs is very, very closed. Readers should not think about opening a bottle anytime soon. Intensely aromatic, but also tightly wound, the 2015 only hints at its true potential. Deceptively medium in body, the 2015 packs a real punch.

2014 Ridge Monte Bello....$193.99 (Limited Quantity)
The come in 3 bottle wood casesThe 2014 Monte Bello is going to need at least a decade to show everything it has. Deceptively medium in body and super-classic in its mid-weight structure, the 2014 offers notable brightness and intensity in an understated style, even by Ridge standards. Today, the 2014 is intensely linear, focused and vibrant. Petit Verdot is the variety that suffered most in the drought, so its presence in the blend is minimal.
Rated 96/100 Vinous Media
