Ridge Vineyards East Bench Zinfandel 2016
This is our second wine entirely from vines on the benchland that separates Dry Creek and Alexander Valleys. The soils are identical across the bench as are the climatic conditions giving the vines the chance to demonstrate character consistent in the wines as they mature fully. The original vines were abandoned in 1920. More of these vineyard blocks have been replanted each year over the last thirty years. 2007 Zinfandel, East Bench, bottled December 2008 This is our second vintage from a young zinfandel vineyard planted atop the eastern bench of Dry Creek Valley. Despite a larger-than-average crop, warm summer weather fully ripened all the grapes. We began picking the stressed vines in Blocks 6 and 7 on August 29, and continued picking for a straight week to get in all the grapes before they overripened. Each of the vineyard's seven parcels fermented separately on natural yeasts.
