If you are after powerful, full bodied, pronounced intensity and ripe black fruits, this fits the bill. This 2015 vintage is enjoyable now with food but will age for the next 10 years easy.
Lytton Springs is home to 100 plus-year-old zinfandel vines interplanted with Petite Sirah, Carignan, a small amount of Mourvèdre and Grenache. For more than three decades, the field blend from this site has produced the quintessential example of Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel. Lytton Springs is a prime example of Ridge’s commitment to championing Heritage varietals – varietals planted more than a century ago, and surviving in numerous locations.
Lytton Springs is indeed an exceptional site for Zinfandel! You must try this!
Each variety and each plot is separately vinified using natural yeast fermentation, letting the wines undergo natural malolactic, and employing minimal egg white fining.
