Sage Ridge Vineyard
In Napa Valley
This vineyard is perched high on the hills to the east of St. Helena. It was planted in 1998. There is no current sub-appellation and it carries the “Napa Valley” banner proudly. Sage Ridge Vineyard is actually a series of small plots that run along the ridgelines. It offers a lot of diversity both in soil types and it exposures with plots facing in essentially all directions. Sage Ridge Vineyard is owned by Judy Jordan of J Winery fame. She has committed her team to a major renovation and elevation of this site which will be ongoing for several years. We chose on parcel to begin our adventure at Sage Ridge that is approximately 1.2 acres planted to a selection of Cabernet Sauvignon taken from Martha’s Vineyard. The thin soils and hillside location make the vines work hard to survive and create grapes with great density as well as potentially powerful tannin/structure.
