    Winemaker Notes

    The Gialla qualities of the Ribolla always ring true, not only in the deep yellow pigment of the grape, but in the aromatics and presence of the wine. This 2014 is particularly aromatic with juicy yellow pear, ginger and chamomile and an oceanic minerality. This is like biting into a perfect pear, complete with a fleshy, broadly textured palate, chin-dribbling juiciness, and the refreshing grit of fine grained tannins.

    The 2014 Ribolla was all destemmed and fermented on the skins with a maceration that lasted 4 months. The wine was then pressed to barrel and aged for an additional 18 months. It was aged in bottle a year before release.

    As with all good stories, this is really about a love affair. This unique winemaking collaboration is the result of Ryan and Mega Glaab's combined love for each other and the world of wines. The couple met in Australia working as seasonal cellar hands at Torbreck Winery. They quickly fell in love and have since been married. Between the two of them, they have worked at wineries such as Pax Wine Cellars, Peay Vineyards, Sine Qua Non, and Marcassin. Their wines for Ryme Cellars are produced at the Wind Gap winery, where Ryan is the Assistant Winemaker for Pax and Pam Mahle’s newest project.

    Ryan and Megan started Ryme Cellars in 2007 with one ton of Aglianico. Excited by the intensity and complexity of this wine, they embarked on producing intriguing wines of varieties that they personally enjoy. To date they make two Vermentinos, Ribolla Gialla, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Aglianico under Ryme. In 2011, Ryan and Megan wanted to expand their production to include some great Sonoma County vineyards that produce the type of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay that they love to drink. For this task, they created a new label called Verse Wines, as a compliment to the more esoteric Ryme portfolio. With Ryme & Verse, Ryan and Megan aspire to make honest and expressive wines that exhibit the characteristics of the variety and place from which it came.

    As one of Napa’s coolest sub-appellations, the area begs for diversity among its vineyards. Merlot and Chardonnay firmly compete with Cabernet Sauvignon for a place here. Some of Napa’s best Zinfandels also come from the Oak Knoll District.

    Situated far in Napa’s southern end, Oak Knoll receives a strong cooling influence from both the San Pablo Bay and the Pacific Coast’s evening fog and breezes. Summer days are warm but on average ten degrees cooler than in St. Helena farther north up the valley; summer nights are chilly. A long growing season promotes for leisurely ripening of grape berries, resulting in an impressive balance of sugars, phenols and acidity.

    Notable producers include Trefethen, one of the appellation’s oldest wineries, Robert Biale, legendary Zinfandel producer and Lewis Cellars, a family-run, hands-on establishment.

    Beyond the usual suspects, there are hundreds of white grape varieties grown throughout the world. Some are indigenous specialties capable of producing excellent single varietal wines, while others are better suited for use as blending grapes. Each has its own distinct viticultural characteristics, as well as aroma and flavor profiles, offering much to be discovered by the curious wine lover. In particular, Portugal, Spain, Italy and Greece are known for having a multitude of unique varieties but they can really be found in any region.
