Wine – 2003 Ridge Sonoma County Three Valleys

2003 Ridge Sonoma County Three ValleysI just happened to come across this wine last night when I was doing a bit of shopping. I’ve always been a big fan of Ridge wines, so this one gave me hope after the disappointment of last night’s Merryvale.

Mmmmm…. I can happily say I my hope wasn’t in vain. It was medium-dark, juicy, full of dark fruit and spice with a nice (but not too powerful) tannic structure. This wine has balls. I had it with a chorizo/basil pizza and it stood up to the spice extremely well.

This is a blend of 72% Zinfandel, 12% Carignane, 10% Petit Sirah, 4% Grenache and 2% Mataro grapes… and full of red wine goodness.

Yummy!
