2007 Ridge Vineyards "Lytton Estate" Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel

SKU #1117793 Wine Spectator

K&L Notes

According to the winery: "In 1972, Ridge made its first Lytton Springs from vines planted here at the turn of the century. We purchased both the eastern and western portions of the vineyard in the early 1990s. (In the 1870s, under "Captain" William Litton's ownership, the two were part of one property; spelling evolved into "Lytton" by 1903). Occasionally, certain of the vineyard blocks may be of excellent quality, but are held out of the Lytton Springs because of over-ripeness, or failure to integrate during assemblage tastings. We combine these to make the Lytton Estate. This year, however, we decided to bottle separately our only block planted to an Italian Primitivo clone of Zinfandel. Like the Lytton Springs, it is fermented using only naturally-occurring yeasts, and is aged in air-dried American oak."
