Ridge Vineyards Three Valleys Sonoma County
What a treat to find a truly dry, balanced table wine among a sea of sweet and overoaked Zins. Full garnet color. Fresh raspberry and blueberry fruits, clay mineral, exotic oak spice. Rich entry with bramble fruit, chewy tannins, creamy/sweet oak, and a moderately long finish.
Blend: 65% Zinfandel, 17% Petite Sirah, 14% Carignan, 4% Grenache.
This wine is happiest when paired with anything from the meat aisle, from BBQ pork ribs, leg of lamb or a big, hearty meal.
