K&L Notes

In 1972, Ridge made its first Lytton Springs from vines planted on the eastern half of the vineyard at the turn of the century, and purchased both the eastern and western portions of the vineyard in the early 1990s. (In the 1870s, under "Captain" William Litton's ownership, the two were part of one property; spelling evolved into "Lytton" by 1903.) 91 points Wine Advocate's Neal Martin: "Tasted at the Lytton off-line at Rotisserie Jules. This is much better than the 1998 and an impressive showing for an 11-year old Zinfandel. The nose has a medicinal element to it, aromas of black cherries, orange liqueur and a hint of creme de cassis. Good definition and lift. The palate is full-bodied, fleshy on the entry, harmonious and succulent, lower pH towards the finish with a touch of spice…a nice prickle on the tongue. An extrovert Lytton Springs Zin, and just delicious to drink. Tasted November 2008." (Wine Journal, 11/2009)
