Critical Acclaim

WE 93
Wine Enthusiast
This focused, firm and tannic wine exudes black pepper and wood-smoke aromas followed by rather tight espresso, blueberry and cacao flavors. Made from 74% Zinfandel and other California heritage-grape varieties, it has the bones of a cool-climate wine and should improve through at least 2028
OB 90
Owen Bargreen
The outstanding 2020 Ridge ‘Three Valleys’ red wine blends 74% Zinfandel with smaller parts Petite Syrah, Alicante Bouschet and Carignane. Medium-bodied red fruits collide with smoke and bramble with Mandarin orange zest flavors on the palate. Enjoy over the next five years. Drink 2022-2027.
