The 2006 Oyster Ridge is an artful blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, Syrah and Zinfandel, and was crafted to exemplify our finest winemaking efforts.  The bouquet brims with accents of black fruit, rose petal, toasty oak and graphite.  A complex tapestry of flavors includes blueberry, blackberry, vanilla, mocha and anise.  Firm tannins and exquisite balance ensure that this wine will reward careful cellaring.

Visitors to our Margarita Vineyard are always astonished when we take them to a block that we call Oyster Ridge. Here, white oyster fossils are literally spilling out of the soil, testifying to the vineyard’s origins as an uplifted sea bed. The Oyster Ridge blended red wine honors the dramatic soils and distinctive qualities of this remarkable place near Santa Magarita, approximately 22 miles south of the city of Paso Robles, California.

The 2006 vintage wine is composed of Cabernet Sauvignon (35%), Petite Sirah (35%), Syrah (23%) and Zinfandel (7%), and was ultimately crafted to create the best red wine from our vineyards and to exemplify our finest winemaking efforts in the Paso wine country. Our winemaker blends wine according to what he believes will make the best blended wine possible, which is not always what tradition dictates. For this reason, Oyster Ridge is unique among blended wines in its combination of Bordeaux grapes with Rhone and California varietals. Few blends in the California red wine experience offer such a unique combination of varietals.

The 2006 Oyster Ridge is a Paso Robles wine that offers flavors of blueberry, blackberry, vanilla, mocha, graphite and anise. Firm tannins and exquisite balance ensure that the wine will reward careful cellaring (assuming proper wine storage conditions in the wine cellar). This is the red wine that occupies the crown of our portfolio.

Only 321 cases of the 2006 Oyster Ridge red wine blend were produced, making it a rather rare wine. It is available at select fine wine merchants and wine shops and on the wine list of several restaurants. It is also available in our wine tasting room in Santa Margarita.
