Ridge Vineyards Three Valleys 2017
Ridge is a top notch American classic, and Three Valleys is their wonderful Zinfandel blend from Sonoma County made of mostly Zinfandel with Petite Sirah, Mataro and Carignane. We love the deep black fruit concentration balanced by the pretty raspberry fruit. Year in and year out, Ridge is a foremost producer of Zinfandel, and a house favorite of the Bottle Shop.

Wine AdvocateThe Three Valleys is Ridge's general Sonoma County blend, made with fruit from ten different old-vine Zinfandel vineyards throughout Sonoma. The 2017 is comprised of 73% Zinfandel, 15% Petite Sirah, 10% Carignane and 2% Grenache, aged 11 months in 5% new American oak. The 2017 Three Valleys has a medium ruby color with scents of warm apricots and baked peaches, red cherries, blueberries, crushed stone and oodles of floral perfume. The medium-bodied palate offers concentrated, tricolored fruits with juicy acidity and grainy tannins, finishing long and perfumed.
