Ridge Lytton Springs 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

93+ points Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate): ...67% Zinfandel, 23% Petite Sirah, 7% Carignane and 3% Mataro... Firm tannins frame an expressive core of dark red cherries, flowers and sweet herbs. The inner perfume of Zinfandel resonates on the finish. The 2010 needs time to soften, but it is quite beautiful. Lytton Spring is a much larger site than Geyserville, the choices for lots are much greater, which affords the winemaking team a great deal of flexibility in crafting the final blends. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030.

Nice dark purple in the glass. Fairly big nose--woody, some berries, some volatility. Pleasant introduction to the palate. Not overwhelming, but some blackberry fruit sneaks up on you. Some tartness around the edges of the tongue. Then there is a hit of some tannin. This is my second review of this wine, and I think I like it better, today, than I did 6 months ago.

Cool season vintage. Tart red fruit with soft tannins and a long finish. Almost european in style.

Many moons ago a colleague sent 3 cases of this back home after touring wine country. I had never really heard of Zinfandel but became a fan, especially since the bottle was under $10 each. So, now we see the true measure of inflation. Every so often I splurge on this----alas it has almost priced itself out of my reach. I still associate Zin with Ridge after all the others I have tried. It is a class act, and hard to follow.
