The 2019 Lytton Springs checks in as 73% Zinfandel, 16% Petite Sirah, and the rest Carignan and Mataro. Revealing a translucent ruby/plum hue as well as beautiful cassis and red plum fruits supported by lots of savory herbs, orange blossom, cigar, and spice-driven aromas and flavors, this beauty hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, a seamless texture, moderate yet present tannins, and a great finish. While the Geyserville Cuvee has eclipsed the Lytton Spring in most vintages in the past decade, that's not the case in 2019.

I was amazed nearly 50 years ago when I tasted the 1972 Ridge Lytton Springs Zinfandel, and after five decades, I still find myself excited with each new release. The 2019 Ridge Lytton Springs is simultaneously active and satisfying on the palate. This wine deftly combines aromas and flavors of savory spices, black fruits, fragrant earthiness, and an accent of oak. Serve it with rosemary and black-pepper accented grilled lamb chops.

Winemaker Notes

Appealing nose of pepper, and raspberry. Layered plum, blackberry and cocoa on the palate with chalky tannins and a lingering finish.  Pair with Texas-style BBQ beef brisket, a classic American burger or fig stuffed pork loin.

 

Blend: 73% Zinfandel, 16% Petite Sirah, 9% Carignane, 2% Mataro
