A little too austere and angular. The depth and complexity is there, but the "zinness" is just not showing yet.
delicious...an awesome zin blend. great with almost anything...meat, chicken, fish, just go with this when you're in the mood for a medium bodied home run!
Great, dark wine - full bodied and complex: better than the 2006!
Paul Draper is the greatest living American Winemaker. This wine will improve with age but is very drinkable already.
A great wine
External Reviews for Ridge Syrah Dry Creek Valley Lytton West Vineyard
Produced from Ridge's estate vineyards on the bench and hills separating Dry Creek and Alexander Valley's in Sonoma, Lytton Springs 2005 is blended from 77% Zinfandel, 17% Petite Sirah and 6% Carignane. One third of the vines are over 100 years of age and yield only 1.5 tons per acre. As with other Ridge, it has been aged in air-dried American oak barrels. The wine is intense and full bodied and will benefit from another year in the bottle to soften the tannic frame.
