92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2001 Lytton Springs Proprietary Red, a blend of 76% Zinfandel, 17% Petite Sirah, and 7% Carignan (14.7% alcohol) is superb. I was knocked out by its multiple dimensions and combination of jammy briery raspberry and currant fruit intermingled with licorice, spice, and pepper. Its dense purple color is accompanied by a rich, full-bodied palate presentation, and a long, seamless finish. Enjoy this outrageously delicious Zinfandel over the next 5-6 years.

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark (76% zinfandel, 17% petite sirah and 7% carignane; as with the 2001 Geyserville, this marks the 40th anniversary for this bottling) Saturated, bright ruby-red. Sappy aromas of maraschino cherry, blood orange and nut skin. Thick, creamy and sweet but bright, with a candied raspberry flavor lifted by a floral element. A pliant, layered wine, finishing with ripe tannins. Also tasted: 2000 Chardonnay Santa Cruz Mountains, 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon Coast Range, 1998 Cabernet Sauvignon Santa Cruz Mountains. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2003)

91 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Firm, focused and concentrated, with a classy array of black plum, black cherry, cola, coffee, chocolate, blackberry, vanilla, spice and herb flavors. The wine is silky smooth, ripe and luxuriously long on the finish. Inner quote mark (11/2003)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Still intense but becoming more delicately rich, while retaining its briary personality. Offers aromas of boysenberry and toasty dill, with complex and slightly earthy flavors of wild berry, leather and cracked pepper. Tannins turn a bit chewy on the finish.

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Very firm and tarry. Lots of alcohol and richness with the dry tannins well in retreat, though there are enough of them to sustain the wine for a pretty long life. Drink 2010-2020. (JR) 18/20 points Inner quote mark (3/2010)
