    Winemaker's Notes:

    Purchased and developed by Gary & Debbie Farrell in 1999, Cresta Ridge Vineyard is highly coveted for its cool, Green Valley location and highly desirable Goldridge soils. The "no expense spared" approach to development, included matching devigorating rootstocks with low-yielding clones and close vine-spacing; "stressing" the plants into producing small quantities of very high quality fruit. This project has proven successful, with 90+ rated wines commonplace year after year from this vineyard. Gary selected fruit from his favorite section of the vineyard (Taurin) Block) for this release.

    Bearing the Cresta Ridge designation preempts lofty expectations … and this wine delivers. Signature minerality combines seamlessly with fresh lime and green apple to create a wine which is exceptionally vibrant, while also expressing great depth, intensity and length. Subtle background notes of oak and lees quietly enhance the near-perfect fruit contribution of this exceptional Russian River Valley / Green Valley property.
