In the glass, this Zin dominant Sonoma blend has a black tire center with bright garnet edges that bleed into a thin translucent halo….
The nose is bright and LOADED with bing cherries and raspberries ———> Another sniff brings out some basement floor must and wood…. When I close my eyes I’m standing in a rick-house with oak barrels stacked to the ceiling….
A sip starts with blueberries and red licorice…. The mid-palate clings to both sides of my tongue and throws a cherry coke blast at me————> A chew and a swish shows soft tannins and cranberry sauce that lead into a loooooong juicy & spicy chipotle-jam finish……
I’m confident that most, if not all of you are at LEAST somewhat familiar with Ridge Vineyards…. Well, here’s their Three Valleys offering and for under $30 bucks – it’s a no brainer! This is a red that EVERYONE will love so… 🎧🎧🎧 Listen to this wine with Turnpike Troubadours – Whole Damn Town
