Food Pairings for Ridge Zinfandel Lytton Springs
Predominantly Zinfandel wine from Ridge. Excellent wine! Fruit forward and jammy on the front with lots of pepper and zinfandel character showing through on the backend. Leather and smoke throughout. Long delicious finish.
Ridge made their first wine from this historic vineyard in 1972. Located on the benchland and rolling hills between Dry Creek and Alexander Valleys, it is just north of Healdsburg, in Sonoma County. Today Lytton East and West, purchased by Ridge in the early nineties, are separated by several small residential parcels. In the 1870s, under 'Captain' William Litton's ownership, they were part of one property; the spelling evolved into 'Lytton' by 1903. The vineyard is planted primarily to Zinfandel and its principal complementary varietals: they include Petite Sirah, Carignane, a small amount of Mataro (Mourvedre), and century-old Grenache. After years of including 'zinfandel' in a prominent position on the front label, Ridge ceased to use it in 1993, instead placing the focus on the distinctive character of the site itself.
