Ridge Vineyards Lytton Springs 2017
We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.
A season of extreme weather began with heavy winter rains that replenished the water table. The vines rebounded with a full crop but record high temperatures in July and August reduced yields, especially in the petite sirah. This concentrated flavor and color and after 14 months in barrel the wine is exceptionally rich and complex. It will develop more fully over the next ten years.
74% ZINFANDEL, 15% PETITE SIRAH, 9% CARIGNANE, 2% MATARO.

VinousRidge'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. -- Antonio Galloni
