2017 Ridge Vineyards "Lytton Springs" Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel

SKU #1435378 94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This blend of 74% zinfandel, 15% petite sirah, 9% carignane and 2% mataro has that signature Ridge freshness and definition with such reliable focus on fruit. Aromas of dried plums, dry roasted spices, red flowers and leaves lead to a palate that has such succulent, rich red berries and plums. So lively and attractive. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (12/2019)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Ridge's 2017 Lytton Springs opens up beautifully, with bright acids that drive a whole range of red/purplish fruit intermingled with floral notes. Creamy and ample in feel, the 2017 boasts superb balance and pedigree. Readers lucky enough to owe it should plan on cellaring it for at least a few years. (AG) Inner quote mark (10/2019)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2017 Lytton Springs is made up of 74% Zinfandel, 15% Petite Sirah, 9% Carignane and 2% Mataro. It aged in 100% air-dried American oak, 10% new. Medium ruby-purple, it opens with dried flowers, autumn leaves and cinnamon stick notions over a core of crushed red cherries, dried cranberries, apricot, underbrush, red currant and black cherries with a super spicy undercurrent. The palate is medium-bodied, spicy and fresh with a grainy frame and juicy freshness, finishing long and lifted. (EB) Inner quote mark (2/2020)

K&L Notes

In 1972, Ridge made its first Lytton Springs from vines planted on the eastern half of the vineyard at the turn of the century. Both the eastern and western portions of the vineyard were purchased in the early 1990s. In the 1870s, under “Captain” William Litton’s ownership, the two were part of one property and the spelling evolved to “Lytton” by 1903. The vineyard is planted to Zinfandel and its principal complementary varietals.
