The iconic Ridge Estate is one of California’s most respected wineries. It produces cult wines whose elegance and finesse is matched only by Burgundy and Bordeaux. The Lytton Springs is a blend of 74% Zinfandel, 16% Petite Sirah, 8% Carignan and 2% Mourvedre. It is extremely expressive with aromas of rich, black fruits imbued with exotic spice from new oak, well structured palate of berries, with superb concentration, firm acidity and fairly intense tannins. This wine will drink well for the next ten years.

Despite it now being discovered that Zinfandel is actually the Primitivo grape of southern Italy, like many of Hollywood‘s greatest stars, being an immigrant hasn‘t kept it from becoming a great national treasure. Brought to California originally on the back of the 1849 gold rush, it became a favourite miners‘ drink. Since then it has proven itself a great adaptor to the fickle American wine market; sweet and pressed quickly it makes the hugely successful ‘blush‘ style, or it can be painstakingly reared expressly for medal-gathering into titanic, alcoholic ‘cult‘ wines. Despite its versatility Zinfandel prefers warm open hillsides and is ideally suited to producing dry, satisfying reds which often share distinctive pruny, raisiny flavours.
