The 2018 Zinfandel Three Valleys is fabulous. Bright, floral and lifted, with very pretty red and purplish berry fruit, the 2018 holds tons of near and medium-term appeal. This mid-weight, gracious Zinfandel is all class. Best of all, pricing is around $30 a bottle. Don't miss it.

Simply Zin-Sational!

A Zinfandel producer that needs no introduction, Ridge Vineyards has a history with Zinfandel that goes all the way back to the 1880’s, when the first vines were planted at the famous Monte Bello Ridge, and where the original stone winery still stands today. Known for making single vineyard wines which reflect the distinctive character of each site, “Three Valleys” represents, instead, the blending of several vineyards in Sonoma. Sonoma style Zinfandel is lighter than your typical Napa Cabernet, but is still considered big-fruited with enough acidity to make it irresistible. There is plenty of cherry, plum and black pepper here, followed by cloves and cinnamon. When thinking of firing up the grill we love a good Zinfandel – its sweet fruit and slightly smoky finish go hand in hand with spicy and tangy barbecue sauces and anything char-grilled.
