Ridge Vineyards 2017 Lytton Springs, Sonoma County
In 1972, Ridge made its first Lytton Springs from vines planted on the eastern half of the vineyard at the turn of the century. The vineyard is planted to Zinfandel and its principal complementary varietals. On the nose, this wine is full of ripe blackberry, pepper, licorice and a hint of vanilla. Concentrated plum and black cherry fruits emerge on the palate with supple tannins, minerality and balanced acidity. The finish is long and layered with notes of ripe fig and dried herbs. This bottle is great with a red wine marinated Tri Tip.
