Ridge Lytton Springs 2021

Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma County, California, United StatesIf there is an authentic California cult wine, my vote goes to Lytton Springs, given its ridiculous level of quality year in and year out, and Ridge’s price restraint. The blend is a complex mix of 72/15/9 zinfandel/petite sirah/carignane with a sprinkling of alicante bouschet, cinsaut, and counoise. Red licorice, crushed strawberries, and black pepper lead smoky, meaty notes, with bright acidity and dense sweet tannins that carry the finish. This wine will age effortlessly for a decade, but you can enjoy it yearly as it fattens up and feathers out at the edges.Tasted: 10 May 2024Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
