The 2010 Lytton Springs (67% Zinfandel, 23% Petite Sirah, 7% Carignane and 3% Mataro) is fascinating because it seems to have handled the heat spikes far better than the Geyserville. This is first and foremost Lytton Springs, and a product of the 2010 vintage second. 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. (AG) 93+
Glass-staining ruby. A heady bouquet evokes cherry pie, potpourri, incense and vanilla, with a bright mineral topnote. Offers and array of ripe red fruit flavors along with notes of allspice and candied lavender. Rich but lively, with excellent finishing clarity and slow-building, silky tannins adding shape. (JR)
