Ridge is an all-time favorite here at Invino, and has been for many decades. A classic American winery, dedicated to old vines and balanced, complex wines, Ridge is truly an icon. That said, the new-release 2018s are some of the finest ever -- the scores and critical acclaim for even the “lower level” wines are astronomical. Take this gorgeous, head-spinning Petite Sirah from VERY old vines at the Lytton Estate in Geyserville (some dating back to 1901). 96 POINTS, $35 and a wine that will rock your world. Wow! We are buying as much as we can!

The history of Ridge Vineyards begins in 1885, when Osea Perrone, a doctor who became a prominent member of San Francisco's Italian community, bought 180 acres near the top of Monte Bello Ridge. He terraced the slopes and planted vineyards; using native limestone, he constructed the Monte Bello Winery, producing the first vintage under that name in 1892.

Vinous, 96 points: “The 2018 Lytton Estate Petite Sirah is totally stunning. Bright, focused and powerful, the 2018 presents a breathtaking interplay of rich Petite fruit allied to a classic, old-school sense of structure. Dark blue/purplish fruit, leather, licorice, lavender, menthol and gravel are some of the many notes that infuse the 2018 with all those layers of flavor. The 2018 is a real stunner.”

$37! Amazing! While it lasts!
