The “Twisty Ridge” Vineyard resides at the top of DLL and points directly toward the Pacific Ocean in the background. The vineyard is very narrow and must be farmed by hand.
Tasting notes: The thin (18-inch) clay-loam topsoil and cold windy weather of Twisty Ridge produce our “big red wine.” Ronn Wiegand: “Outstanding (⁕⁕⁕⁕⁕): full and ripe in style, with layers of complexity. It is supple in texture, intensely flavored (cherry, blueberry, black currant, rose petal, vanilla, cedar, spicy oak), very long and well balanced on the palate, and moderately tannic on the finish. Needs aging.”
