Ridge Vineyards Three Valleys Sonoma County Zinfandel Blend 2013

$26

Another fantastic Three Valleys from Ridge and one of the best Zinfandel values anywhere!  "Three Valleys" is the proprietary name for the only Ridge wine blended from multiple vineyard sites.  They select softer, more accessible lots from their single vineyards and, taking the role of winemaker literally, create a character they find most appealing. Younger vines from Lytton Estate provided most of the fruit; older vines on five small Alexander Valley vineyards and one Russian River vineyard make up the rest.  This 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 bemost enjoyable over the next five years. 91 Points Wine Enthusiast "Editor's Choice:  "This bottling defines such a style. It's dry and lithe in the mouth yet gently tannic, with suggestions of berry jam, bacon, grilled mushrooms and hints of balsamic and soy sauce." 80% ZINFANDEL, 10% PETITE SIRAH, 5% CARIGNANE, 5% GRENACHE

One of the smoothest Three Valleys I've ever had. Always such a great value. If you're the type who carries a "house" wine, a great candidate for your resident red.

This. This is delicious. Excellent drinkability. On the bold, fruity side with a really pleasant, anise-y aftertaste.

2013. Had a glass last night with my cochon at Cochon, and really wanted to like it more with the pork. Dark and rustic, I was looking for more bright fruit.
