2002 Ridge Vineyards "Lytton Springs" Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel

SKU #1008617 93 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark **Two Stars** This is the richest and deepest of the current collection of Zinfandels from Ridge, and, while it is simply brimming with highly ripened berries, it derives a very real sense of complexity from its layered suggestions of pepper, caramel, chocolate and loam. A big but well-balanced mouthful of wine, it is solidly structured and just tannic enough to argue that, as good as it is right now, it will be that much better with a few years of additional age. Inner quote mark (9/2004)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark One of the most famous names in Zinfandel-land is Lytton Springs, and Ridge’s 2002 Lytton Springs (75% Zinfandel, 20% Petite Sirah, and 5% Carignan) boasts a deep ruby/purple hue along with a big, sweet nose of briery, blueberry, and blackberry fruit, full body, good acidity, and notions of pepper, loamy earth, and licorice. Inner quote mark (2/2005)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright, dark red. Superripe aromas of plum, blackcurrant, espresso and chocolate; distinctly port-like with aeration. Fat, dense, silky and sweet, but youthfully slightly medicinal flavors are not yet expressing themselves. Intensely flavored and serious, with considerable aging potential. Inner quote mark (8/2004)
