A complex and balanced red with classic cabernet-like aromas even though it's dominated by zinfandel. Wonderfully structured: perfect for diner parties involving steak.

Reviews and Ratings

This Zinfandel-centric wine is a blend of 70% Zinfandel, 15% Carignan, 10% Petite Sirah, 3% Grenache and 2% Mataro (Mourvèdre). The “Three Valleys” is full bodied and structured with abundant fruit and lively acidity. Deep ruby red in color, with raspberry jam, pepper and clay. Smooth, silky tannins and an elegant integration of oak. Source: Joe Iurato, northjersey.com

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
