Ridge Proprietary Red Lytton Springs 2011, 375ml (AG93+, WA92-94) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Ridge Proprietary Red Lytton Springs

375ml

Vintage: 2011
Region: US
Appellation: Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma County

AG93+, WA92-94
(2009 label shown)

Rated 92-94 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The 2011 Lytton Springs is an intriguing wine. It is at once quite tannic, but also medium in body, as most wines are in this vintage. The structure of Petite Sirah is felt in the wine`s tannin. Dusty red cherries, flowers and sweet herbs wrap around the finish. There is a translucency to the 2011 that is highly appealing. In 2011, only 50% of candidate parcels were used in the final blend. The 2011 is 82% Zinfandel, 16% Petite Sirah and 2% Carignane. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2031.` -- Antonio Galloni in the Wine AdvocateAdditional Notes from the Wine Advocate: `Indiana Jones and I have one thing in common - a fear of snakes. That is why every time I see the sign in the Ridge parking lot that reads `Beware of rattlesnakes,` I get a little uneasy. So it`s quickly into the tasting room for me. Winemaker Eric Baugher and his team have prepared a great tasting covering all of the Ridge classics, plus a few smaller-production bottlings I am tasting for the first time. This is a sublime set of new releases from one of this country`s greatest heritage wineries. It`s hard to know where to start, but the highlights are the 2009 Monte Bello, followed by the 2010, which will be released this year, plus some of the Zinfandels and Zinfandel-based wines. The 2010 harvest was not an easy one. The summer was very cold, as it was throughout California. Ridge was severely affected by August heat spikes that were crippling for Zinfandel. The wines that were bottled are the result of a severe selection of the best fruit that survived the heat.`
