External Reviews for Ridge Vineyards 'Three Valley' Three Valleys Zinfandel
Excellent intensity, with ripe, concentrated wild berry, raspberry, plum and cherry notes, with a nice dash of toasty, cedary oak and finishing with firm tannins. Drink now through 2008. 2,000 cases made
A ripe bruiser, yet with an underlying sense of structure and finesse. Shows aromas of blueberry pie and toasty dill, with concentrated plum, licorice and smoky pepper flavors that are wrapped in muscular tannins. Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Carignane and Grenache. Best from 2010 through 2015.
Medium-bodied with flavors of black cherry, and currant. The strong Zinfandel presence adds spice to the toasty finish as well as plenty of lush and upfront fruit.
Ridge's Three Valleys bottling is a field blend, consisting mainly of Zinfandel. It's a hearty, full-bodied red wine, dense with black fruit and chocolatey tannins.
Exotic aromas of Chinese five-spice, toasty oak and plum lead to concentrated blueberry, tobacco and licorice notes that take on a rustic grip of tannins on the finish. Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Carignane, Grenache and Mataro. Best from 2008 through 2012.
A staff favorite for many years, Ridge Vineyards is famous for out-of-this-world Zinfandels and Zin-based blends. The Three Valleys is 70% Zin, with Carignan, Petite Sirah, Grenache and Mataro making up the balance. Bold and spicy, but with a lush, smooth finish, there are few wines better suited to BBQ ribs, braised pork or a juicy rare filet mignon.
Thrifty consumers will no doubt get a juicy charge from the 2004 three Valleys, a 15,000-case proprietary blend of 68% Zinfandel, 11% Carignane, 10% Syrah, and the rest Petite Sirah and Grenache. A pretty, elegant wine with lush raspberry and black cherry fruit, a seductive texture, medium body, 14.1% alcohol. and beautiful integration of acidity, wood, and tannin, it should drink well for 2-3 years.
