...Powerful and explosive in the glass, the 2013 boasts tons of inky blue/purplish fruit, mocha, spices, new leather, lavender and licorice...it is nearly impossible to resist, even at this early stage. Once again, the team at Ridge has produced an absolutely compelling Lytton Springs. The 16% Petite Sirah in the blend adds an unmistakable air of gravitas. Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

Dark cherry liqueur on the nose. Sugar coated plums, dark berries, sweet bay leaf and fine grained tannins in the mouth. Another "satisfying" wine from Ridge.

Nice round, full, lush, ripe; blackberries, blueberries, boysenberries with dark chocolate notes. Drinking well for a 13 at this early stage. Very good dark chocolate wine.

Dark purple. Hints of gingerbread on the nose. Taste of creamy fruits, spice, pepper. Noticeable alcohol burn that gets in the way of a wine that is delicious otherwise. $38 at winery.

Dark, inky red. None of the Draper perfume I've come to expect but a nice bouquet nonetheless. Full mouthfeel, well balanced, with some medium tannins, with a long finish. Great showing which should continue to drink well for many years.

Super-heady, but no heat. Kirsch and Cherry Bounce take center stage. The background is a blend of herbal, floral, and leather tones. For some reason I feel like this probably tastes just like the 1974 did in 1978.
