An early spring and warm summer advanced ripening with the Petite Sirah harvest starting August 21. Low yields and small clusters concentrated tannin and color. To manage extraction, Ridge fermented the grapes cooler and as whole berries; maceration averaged five days. After malolactic the wine aged in American oak for twelve months. This full-bodied, beautifully balanced wine can be enjoyed over the next twenty years.
