Notes from the Winemaker:

The history of the Ridge Three Valleys began with the release of the 2001. The wine contains grapes from a number of Sonoma vineyards—this year, ten. We take great care in selecting the fruit, which is hand-harvested, then crushed and fermented on its native yeast and naturally occurring malolactic bacteria at both Monte Bello and Lytton Springs wineries. Unlike our single-vineyard wines, which reflect the distinctive character of each site, Three Valleys represents the blending of vineyards—winemaking—at its finest. Zinfandel determines the wine’s varietal character; old-vine carignane contributes bright fruit and acidity; petite sirah spice, depth of color, and firm tannins.

Ratings & Reviews

89 Points Wine Spectator:
"Taut and lean in structure, showing modest flavors of cherry and blueberry laced with dill and pepper. Finishes with sinewy tannins. Zinfandel, Carignane, Petite Sirah and Mataro. Best after 2024. 15,000 cases made." - Tim Fish (May 2024)
