External Reviews for Ridge Vineyards 'Three Valley' Three Valleys Zinfandel
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.
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.
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.
A terrific blend from winemaker Paul Draper, this concoction of 50% Zinfandel, 15% Petite Sirah, 15% Carignan, 11% Mourvedre, and 9% Grenache tips the scales at 14.1%. A California Rhone Valley look-alike, it boasts loads of raspberry, black cherry, and currant fruit, excellent density, and a sweet, glycerin-imbued mouthfeel offering charm, succulence, and loads of character. This medium to full-bodied, voluptuous, sexy red is ideal for drinking over the next 4-5 years.
An absolutely beautiful Zin, and a must-have for restaurant wine lists. It's pure and complex in blackberries, cherries, cola and mocha, with wonderful spices erupting all the way through, and the most elegant silky texture. What a great job.
Bright medium red. Red berries, rose petal and exotic spices on the nose. Then juicy, peppery and distinctly dry in the mouth, with a leanness to the red berry flavors. Finishes with dusty tannins and a building dryness.
Zesty and appealingly eccentric, with wild berry and exotic Asian spice aromas and layered baked cherry, anise and walnut flavors. Zinfandel, Petit Sirah, Syrah, Grenache and Carignane. Drink now through 2013.
A great blend of Zinfandel Petite Sirah Carignane Mourvedre and Grenache. It has all the spiciness and BBQ-friendly berry fruit you could hope for but also has a smoothness and richness that distinguishes itself from other Zins.
