About Ridge Vineyards 2019 Lytton Springs Zinfandel Blend, Dry Creek Valley

Lytton Springs is home to 100 plus-year-old zinfandel vines interplanted with Petite Sirah, Carignane, a small amount of Mataro (Mourvdre), and Grenache. For more than three decades the field blend from this site has produced the quintessential example of Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel. Lytton Springs is a prime example of Ridge's commitment to championing Heritage varietals - varietals planted more than a century ago, and surviving in numerous locations. They honor the individual character of these vines by fermenting each variety and each lot separately using natural yeast fermentation, letting the wines undergo natural malolactic, and employing minimal egg white fining. 

This 2019 is a blend of 73% Zinfandel, 16% Petite Sirah, 9% Carignane and 2% Mataro aged 14 months in 100% air-dried American oak barrels, 15% new. 

Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored awarded this a Cellar Selection and scored it 95 points saying "This densely packed and deeply concentrated blend of Zinfandel with 16% Petite Sirah, 9% Carignan and 2% Mataro is practically legendary. It boasts subtle, complex fruit flavors ranging from raspberry to blackberry to blueberry, while a velvety texture of fine-grained tannins and a subtle raspberry-like tartness give it great structure. Best from 2025 to 2035." 

Jeb Dunnuck scored this 95 points saying " The 2019 Lytton Springs checks in as 73% Zinfandel, 16% Petite Sirah, and the rest Carignan and Mataro. Revealing a translucent ruby/plum hue as well as beautiful cassis and red plum fruits supported by lots of savory herbs, orange blossom, cigar, and spice-driven aromas and flavors, this beauty hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, a seamless texture, moderate yet present tannins, and a great finish. While the Geyserville Cuvee has eclipsed the Lytton Spring in most vintages in the past decade, that's not the case in 2019."
