Weekly Wine Deal: 2017 Three Ridges Red
Regular Retail: $28.99
Deal Price: $24.99 a bottle or an additional 10% off a case
Ridge is an estate that needs little introduction after more than 50 years of being among the top producers in California. Whether it is their creation of the most succinct selection of vineyard designate Zinfandels, to their top five in the world Cabernet, the Monte Bello, Ridge has been showered with awards and accolades. What you might not know is that it all got started when a group of like minded engineers from Stanford University purchased the old Monte Bello winery and began by producing a half barrel of their first Monte Bello cab in 1962. The first Ridge Vineyards single vineyard Zin followed in 1964 and from there it was off to the races. Geyserville in 1966, Lytton Springs in 1972, 5th place at the famous 'Judgement in Paris' in 1976 and, led by the industry famous Paul Draper, the list of accomplishments continued. Our email deal this week, the 2017 Ridge Three Valleys Red has been specially selected for the upcoming holiday. This delicious, 91pt rated wine is definitely worth the stretch and was the clear winner among the many wines we had to pick from.
The 2017 Ridge Three Valleys Red is a blend of 73% Zinfandel, 15% Petite Sirah, 10% Carignane, and 2% Grenache. Unlike their single vineyard Zinfandels, the Three Valleys represents an artistry of blending from ten different vineyard sites throughout the Sonoma region. The Zinfandel is combined with the old vine Carignane for brightness and acidity, while the Petite Sirah imbues more depth of color, spice and tannins. The wine has an inky, deep plum red color that coats the glass. The upfront, fresh nose of black raspberry, balsamic strawberry, cherry notes, laced with spring mint and spice are true splendor for your nose. The Three Valleys has a sultry mouthfeel that is saturated in red berry fruits along with a very lively texture and extended finish. The Ridge Three Valleys Red is a perfect go-to wine for Thanksgiving dinner to balance the complex fall flavors that come with the big meal. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
