Ridge Three Valleys Red 2004
from Sonoma County, California
"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

Very nice wine for the money. Notes of cocoa and even a hint of leather on the nose. Jam, blackberry and black pepper flavors with a nice spicy finish. Nice and dry with decent tannins.
