2015 Sauvignon Blanc - SOLD OUT

 

The floral, apple and melon fruited Semillon (24%) fills in the open spaces  of the flinty Sauvignon Blanc, with its fresh grass, tart lemon, and hints of tobacco.

A kiss of French oak lends an elegant creaminess to the texture. With seafood, from shellfish to sword fish---perfect!

2014 Hundred Point Pinot Noir

 

The Hundred Point name comes from a rocky promontory on the nearby Mendocino coast, where, legend has it, one hundred ships have been wrecked.

 

Only four barrels of our 2014 Pinot Noir were selected for the Hundred Point Pinot Noir blend,

so we were able to produce just 100 cases.

2013 Syrah

 

Syrah is the perfect varietal for Greenwood Ridge, taking advantage of the extended growing season to ripen slowly and evenly into late October. While retaining its innate earthy minerality, our Syrah shows off aromas of dark berries and leather.

2013 Late Harvest White Riesling

 

Sin in a bottle. All that sweet apricot, pineapple and honeydew melon fruit, artfully balanced by a framework of acidity and honeyed botrytis. The "noble rot" dehydrates the berries to bring about this intense concentration of fruit. The wine stands alone as dessert, or serves as a killer complement to melon, a dry tart, or Roquefort cheese.

 

***** "Outstanding! Very refined and intense in aroma and flavor (peach jam, pear, honeysuckle,  pineapple, honeydew melon). Very rich and long on the palate, with firm acidity and a persistent finish. Great value. 45 Brix at harvest." ---Restaurant Wine Magazine

2013 Hundred Point Cabernet Sauvignon

 

The Hundred Point name comes from a rocky promontory on the nearby Mendocino coast, where, legend has it, one hundred ships have been wrecked.

 

The challenge of Cabernet on the Ridge is to get it ripe. When it does mature it is glorious, flush with  blackberry, black currant, green olive, tobacco, cedar and menthol, with an elegant suppleness that dazzles.
