Mendocino Ridge is a new appellation for the county. It is one of the few places in the world that can boast both mountain and coastal conditions at the same time. This makes for big, ripe Zinfandels with incredible structure. Big wine our '99. Real big wine. It's thick, it's lush and it's saturated with cranberry, wild herbs, pepper and dark chocolate. Great example of what Mendocino Ridge can do.
