Made from 70% Zinfandel, 17% Petit Verdot and the rest Carignan and Mataro, the 1999 Lytton Springs is a gorgeous wine that's a testament to the ageability of the Zinfandels made at this estate. Supple, sexy, and ready to go with lots of blackberry, cedary spice and truffle, it's medium to full-bodied, has ample mid-palate fruit and a seamless, silky texture. It's drinking at point and not going to get any better, but it should have no problems holding nicely going forward either. (JD)
Bright medium ruby. Black raspberry and loam on the nose. Spicy, smooth and seamless, with lovely concentration and texture. Nicely balanced, thoroughly ripe, gently styled Zin, finishing with excellent length and smooth tannins. (ST)
Starts out with an earthy, gamy, leathery character, then pulls itself together, offering ripe cherry, plum and raspberry fruit to complement the earthy components. (JL)
