Burnet Ridge

Burnet Ridge Chip began Burnet Ridge Winery, named after the street where he grew up in Northern Kentucky, to make quality wine for himself and his friends and family. This small Old-World style of winery was never intended to be a commercial operation but one of personal enjoyment. Working as safety engineer for the state of Kentucky during the day and researching and experimenting with wine at night, Chip perfected his wines. Chip would often show up at local wine tastings with his hand-crafted artisan wines and share them with local wine advocates. When people asked Chip where he purchased his wine he would humbly say, “I make this in my garage.” In 1993 Chip, with the help of his friend Steve Dietrich, began Burnet Ridge, Inc. as commercial winery which has been producing high-quality fine wines ever since.

  Melange a Trois Chardonnay
The wine, aged in French oak barrels, is full bodied with toasty, earthy, ripe pear and apple flavors. encourage you to drink this lovely wine while it is in its youth; however it does have the acidity to age.
This wine has a soft mouth feel and an excellent finish. It has coffee like nuances in the nose, with big, intense, herbal, cedary, chalky, blackberry with black cherry fruit flavors. This is a Cab drinkers Merlot which is lovely to drink now, but certainly has the potential for several years of bottle aging.

This is a Pauillac style Bordeaux blend consisting of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot.The color of the wine is dark ruby with intense, ripe, raspberry fruit and green olive aromas that open up while airing in the glass. This wine has forward, rich, plush, cedary, spicy, red currant flavors with great depth and structure. Aged in mostly new American oak from the Ozarks in Southwestern Missouri. Enjoyable to drink now, though will benefit with several more years of bottle aging.
  Sauvignon Blanc
The grapes in this wine were picked under ideal conditions.The aroma suggest peaches, melon, fig and spice.The flavors are fresh, supple, earthy, grassy and citrussy. The wine has good depth and length on the finish; with a lingering aftertaste. This very appealing wine shows intense varietal character and will continue to develop with bottle age for another year or so.

Hill side grapes from a single vineyard produced this fabulous blend. The addition of Trillium takes this wine to the next level of Greatness! It enhances the color, mouth feel, middle pallet and finish of the wine. There is herbal, ripe plum/cherry aroma with overtones of vanilla and spice. This wine is fun to drink now and will benefit from further bottle age if you have the patience to wait.

The finish (classic Burnet Ridge) lingers on the palate. Though this wine appears ready to drink on release, bottle age will further its development.
