Wine Advocate 91 points – The 2017 Lytton Springs is made up of 74% Zinfandel, 15% Petite Sirah, 9% Carignane and 2% Mataro.

The blend is produced through hand-harvested grapes, indigenous yeast with malolactic bacteria, and then aged for 14 months in oak barrels.

While very accessible and drinking well now, it will improve with age and evolve over a decade or more

Description

Lytton Springs, found in Ridge Vineyards, is home to 100 plus-year-old zinfandel vines interplanted with petite sirah, carignane, a small amount of mataro (mourvèdre), and grenache. For more than three decades the field blend from this site has produced the quintessential example of Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel.

Surrounded by beautiful 115-year-old vines, the eco-sustainable Lytton Springs Winery stands as one of the most unique sites in all of Sonoma County’s wine country. With a pre-industrial approach to winemaking, techniques such as the usage of natural yeast help develop the wines to reach a complexity of its own.
