Ridge Vineyards, Lytton Springs, Dry Creek Valley, 2021

12 in stock

In 1972, Ridge made its first Lytton Springs from vines planted on the eastern half of the vineyard at the turn of the century. Both the eastern and western portions of the vineyard were purchased in the early 1990s, (In the 1870s, under “Captain” William Litton’s ownership, the two were part of one property; spelling evolved to “Lytton” by 1903.) The vineyard is planted to zinfandel and its principal complementary varieties.

A dry winter left the vines struggling to find water. This reduced fruit set in all varietals especially Zinfandel. 38 parcels were harvested from September 1st to October 5th and fermented separately. 34 were selected, including vines planted in 1901 and 80 year old counoise inter-planted with cinsault. Enjoyable now, this beautiful, complex wine will continue to develop over the next ten years and beyond.
