"Ridge is one of the best and most intelligently run wineries anywhere in the world…. world-class wines in every way.”
His Monte Bello Cabernet Sauvignon blend held its own in the 1976 Judgment of Paris, and earned the top spot in 2006 when the Judgement organizer revisited the wines. It remains one of the world's finest Cab blends. Yet the Evanston-born Paul Draper of Ridge Vineyards refused to rest on his laurels, and decided to work with what was then a little known varietal known as Zinfandel. Today he and Ridge Vineyards are also known for their world-class, riotously ripe, benchmark Zins. The 2018 Three Valleys Zin blend is a textbook example, and at 33% off one of the very best deals now on our shelves.
