    Winemaker's Notes:

    "Three Valleys" is the Ridge proprietary name for its only wine blended from multiple vineyard sites. To make it, we select softer, more accessible lots from our single vineyards, combining them to create the character we think will be most appealing. Younger vines on the Lytton Springs Vineyards in Dry Creek Valley provided roughly half the fruit; a third came from Geyserville, Mazzoni, and Stone Ranch Vineyards in Alexander Valley; the balance is from Pagani Ranch in the cool Sonoma Valley. The wines fermented on their natural yeasts, were pressed, on average, after eight days, and finished a natural (uninoculated) malolactic within four weeks. Enjoyable now, this spicy, beautifully-defined zinfandel blend will develop fully over the next four or five years.

    68% zinfandel, 11% carignane, 10% syrah, 7% petite sirah, 4% grenache

    You can always count on Ridge for quality Zin, even at their entry level. Really nice blueberry and blackberry, with some cola right up front. The blending grapes really add some depth and complexity, and the smooth, oaky finish is quite pleasant. For under $20 you can't go wrong with this Zin blend

    A full bodied and spicy wine. Bold taste with subtle finish. Good tannins.
