The 2010 Lytton Springs (67% Zinfandel 23% Petite Sirah 7% Carignane and 3% Mataro) is fascinating because it seems to have handled the heat spikes far better than the Geyserville. This is first and foremost Lytton Springs and a product of the 2010 vintage second. Firm tannins frame an expressive core of dark red cherries flowers and sweet herbs. The inner perfume of Zinfandel resonates on the finish. The 2010 needs time to soften but it is quite beautiful. Lytton Spring is a much larger site than Geyserville the choices for lots are much greater which affords the winemaking team a great deal of flexibility in crafting the final blends. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030. 93+

Closed initially aeration reveals an abundantly fragrant nose of plum and blackberry with touches of baking spices and dark chocolate. This has a rich full bodied mouth feel with loads of dark fruit and dense structure up front eventually yielding its core of sweet blackberry and black cherry complemented by savory dried herbs. This is a round and complete wine with good structure and fresh vibrant acidity. Decant to enjoy now this is loaded with the potential to age for 10+ years. Another great success from Ridge.
