Thanks to everyone who purchased our 2007 Double Barrel Cabernet Sauvignon aka The Black Label. The wine sold out in roughly 6 months, so we're really happy about that.
Rest assured, we have the next vintage just about ready to release. The next Double Barrel offering will be coming from Lencioni Vineyard (they're next to Ridge's Lytton Springs Vineyard in Healdsburg). The flavor is intense blackberry fruit with a nice balance of tannin and mouthfeel.
In addition, we're down to about 15 cases of our Proprietor's Reserve aka The Red Label from Doug Rafanelli Vineyard. You won't see Rafanelli's vineyard again until the 2011 release. I've tasted through the 2011's and the flavors are developing nicely. We blended new French and American oak in the 2011 along with our standard barreling program of neutral oak.
Thanks again for your support.
