Wine Review: This wine came across as a very well balanced and very food friendly wine. This wine has been very consistently good over the last few vintages. This ’04 continues that consistency. The wine has medium tannins. It has medium weight to its body as well. Whether it is steak, burgers, or taco’s on the menu, reach for this wine. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: 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. EB, JO, PD (1/06)
