Review a new wine!
  2006 - Ridge Three Valleys
 May 15, 2008

1 star 1 star 1 star

 A very nice zin. Purple red in color, medium bodied wine. Very structured for a zin. Impressive. Balance was excelllent. Fruit was not prominent; however, the the combined terroir of the blended multiple vineyard zinz, alcohol, and fruit make for a well balanced. wine. When no one component sticks out yet all are present, that tells me this is a well made zin. Bouquet slightly of meat. Highly recommended. Made me want to try others Ridge zin bottling, perhaps of single vineyard sites. They make a lot, like Rosenblum.

 Thin red in color, acidic banalce. Nice tang due to acid. Not certain if this was supposed to have more fruit or it faded. Fastes running legs I've ever seen. Slight bricking/browning, yet despite these apparent detractions, was an OK wine. The finish fades quicky but due to the acid present, there is a tang that also remains. It remains to be seen if further aging can improve this wine.
