The Gang makes no secret of our fondness for the wines of Ridge Vineyards. In fact, we rather flaunt it, as is apparent to folks familiar with our site.

Ridge has been making great wines, especially Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel for decades, and winemaker Paul Draper has been honored the world over for his deft hand in crafting such consistent masterpieces as Monte Bello, Geyserville and Lytton Springs.

For those of you who share our love of these wines, we hope that consolidating these tasting notes in one area will provide easier access to our impressions of "Mr. Ridge." We have chosen to include notes on Lytton Springs Winery bottlings in this section, not only because Ridge actually made the last few vintages under that label, but also because of the historical ties between the two producers, as detailed in califusa's fascinating interview with Lytton Spring's founder, Richard Sherwin. The entire article, Homage to Lytton Springs, may be found here.
