The last, maybe only, Ridge Pinot was the '71 Ridge CoastRange Pinot. Think the grapes were from main area of SCM, above LosGatos.
I will probably buy out of curiosity, but with fairly low expectations.

Why such low expectations Tom? Couldn't find the exact vineyard, but given that it's labeled Corralitos and Santa Cruz County I'm guessing it's about a mile or so from the Schultze Vineyard at Windy Oaks.

Rhys Mt. Pajaro Vineyard is in the same vicinity. I look forward to hearing the verdict on this.
Cheers,

Mike

Well, Taylor.... I'm just not getting my hopes up. I'm Hoping to be pleasantly surprised though. I expect it to taste like a PinotNoir made by a Ridge Zin producer. Don't expect it will have a lot of SCM Pinot character.
Probably what I'm gonna do is right up my TN before I taste it. And then a TN when I actually taste it & you can compare.
I had low expectations on the two GrenacheBlancs and the Falanghina. I was quite pleasantly surprised.
Tom
