Ridge Lytton Springs has briary blackberry, dark cherry and pepper on the nose. The palate full bodied, viscous with well coated tannins, plum and cocoa. The finish is long with bright acidity.
Blend: 82% Zinfandel, 16% Petite Sirah, 2% Carignane
The 2011 Lytton Springs has a wonderful burst immediacy to it, backed up by the structure of the year. This isn't the most nuanced Lytton Springs in recent memory. Despite its considerable appeal today, my sense is the 2011 needs a few more years in bottle for all of the elements to fully come together. The blend is 82% Zinfandel, 16% Petite Sirah and 2% Carignane.
Juicy and ripe with bright red fruit and smooth texture; juicy and ripe, fresh and tangy with depth, balance and lovely style. 82% Zinfandel, 16% Petite Sirah, 2% Carignane.
