Ridge Vineyards Lytton Springs Zinfandel Blend 2013

$48.99

...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

Bright, glass-clinging purple red. Nose and palate of plum-berry cobbler. Mouth filling with juicy, medium acidity and medium minus tannins (just a dusting on the finish). Holding up very well, as expected. Steak? Stroganoff? Southern Italian? You got this.

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.

Still a baby. Intense dark fruits--blackberry and cherry--on the pallet, and very smooth, this has a long ways to go to fully mature. We will wait 3-5 years, and try another then. Anticipate the score will only go up.

Wonderful ripe and sublime zin blend. Some cigar ash and dried spice in the background. Would be a good intro wine for people venturing into different isles of the store

Had this at home 1/5/17 with Kallem. Have had it before and liked it. This time really didn't like it. Tasted this, acidic and lacking fruit. Maybe a bad year or bad bottle?
