Wine Advocate 91 points - A blend of 80% Zinfandel, 11% Carignan, 8% Petite Sirah and a splash of Alicante Bouschet, the 2013 Three Valleys has lots of berry fruits, bramble, spice-box and licorice in its medium-bodied, supple, nicely textured and delicious profile. It doesn’t have the structure or depth of the Lytton Spring, but it’s a full-flavored, delicious wine to drink over the coming 7-8 years.  (Oct 2015)

Winemakers John Olney's notes (back label text) - This, our only multi-vineyard wine, comes from three of the finest appellations in Sonoma County. As with our single-vineyard wines, the grapes are harvested by hand, fermented on native yeasts and aged in small cooperage. Cool summer weather delayed ripening; we began harvesting in mid-September, finishing in late October. We chose the most accessible lots from eight ranches for the 2011. This elegant wine has generous fruit, and will be most enjoyable over the next four to five years.

Tasting Notes - Garnet color; briar fruit, dried herbs, clay earth, sweet oak; Fresh raspberry and cherry, moderate acid, round tannins, savory oak spice, medium body, lively finish

The history of Ridge's Sonoma County Three Valleys began with last year's release of the 2001. The wine contains grapes History Three Valleys is a Ridge proprietary name, referring to three of Sonoma County's finest appellations. Roughly half the grapes in this bottling came from six vineyards in Dry Creek Valley, one-third from six vineyards in Alexander Valley, and the balance from two vineyards in the Russian River Valley; included are grapes from recent plantings on our Lytton Springs and Geyserville vineyards. The wines fermented on their natural yeasts, were pressed at eight days, and completed a natural (uninoculated) malolactic fermentation five weeks later. Aged in air-dried american oak barrels (twenty percent new, the rest two to six years old), this full, well-balanced zinfandel is enjoyable now. Its rich fruit will show to best advantage over the next four or so years.
