Food Pairings for Ridge Three Valleys Red
A big but balanced zin. Got a case on sale to cellar, but am going through it fast!
Big and in your face but keeps in under control. Cherries in the hizzy. It tastes like I just ate a bunch of cherries and got some stems and am spitting out the seeds. Props Ridge. Note: Krista Butterfield says it has a classy glassy mouthfeel.
"Three Valleys" is the proprietary name for the only Ridge wine blended from multiple vineyard sites. We select softer, more accessible lots from our single vineyards and , taking the role of winemaker literally, create a character we find most appealing. Younger vines from Lytton provided most of the fruit; older vines from five small Alexander Valley vineyards and one Russian River vineyard make up the rest. The grapes fermented on their own yeasts in small-capacity tanks. Pressed, on average, by the seventh day, they completed a natural malolactic fermentation. The wine was then racked to American oak barrels, whose staves had been air (not kiln) dried for twenty-four months. We blind-tasted all the lots in spring, creating this elegant blend. Our sixth vintage of Three Valleys contains the highest percentage of zinfandel to date. Sensuous structure and rich fruit give the wine immediate appeal; it will be most enjoyable over the next five years. Grapes: 80% Zinfandel, 10% Petite Sirah, 5% Carignane, 5% Grenache 14.3% ABV
