Ridge was a thriving quality winery. I had tasted their wines many
times. Last year they sold out to a larger group. This could have
been the end of the story.
And then enters Wine of the Month Club, and a relationship with
the original owner. He is tired. He wants out.
We want in.
So I get these two samples: Petite Sirah, and his Special
Blend. Petite Sirah: Big, viscous wine with tons of fruit and blackberry...long
full finish. I flip over it. Then the Special Blend: I can't control
myself. I pick up the phone from in the tasting room to confirm
that I can sell these wines for $6.99---after all, they sold for
$20 in the winery's tasting room.
I only have 103 cases of the Special Blend (Syrah and Cabernet
Sauvignon) and 112 cases of the Petite Sirah. That's it. Well, there
might be a little less, because I am taking some home.
