Three Valleys Sonoma County Zinfandel Blend 2020

Round five of blind tasting and we all missed on this. I think a Zinfandel blend is cruel. I swore this was a Sonoma Cab… all those blended varieties proved tricky and the Zinfandel doesn’t stand out on its own. Dark ruby red with dark over ripened and jammy fruits. Smells hot. Also VANILLA. Say that five times. Has some nice bell pepper and green notes, some eucalyptus, balsamic, and a touch of mint. Low tannic levels, moderate acid and body. It’s delicious but tripped us up. — 2 days ago

Agree @Paul T- Huntington Beach but I didn’t get to choose for the tasting. In any case, it does seem drinkable now, but certainly has miles to go!

Three Wine Company

Contra Costa County Zinfandel 2019

Very fruity. Black cherry and blackberry aromas and some notes of cinnamon, then balanced fruit and baking spices that tingle the tongue and linger on. What Goes with That: Fall Sweets Class, pairing: pumpkin pie. — 3 months ago

Single Vineyard Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2021

Very interesting wine, what with its hints of green pepper which, at first, took us by surprise. It grew on us though, and it's one we'll seek out again.

Three D Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

[Tasted on November 19, 2022 at Mimo in Nashville with Jay]

Purchased during visit to the winery in September 2022. Salvestrin was pouring library wines. Three D bottling is selected from Salvestrin’s finest lots in their Dr. Crane Vineyard. Dark cherry and blackberry fruit, with toasted oak, lead pencil, vanilla and spice. Silky and elegant wine which has aged very well.

Three Palms Vineyard Merlot 2019

2019 vintage. Earthy spicefest up front with waves of ultimately balancing mid-palate fruit and crunchy, finishing tannins. Power-laden Merlot. Lower your sails and salute when it passes by. — 3 months ago
