Read the Washington Post’s recent article, recommending “5 California Zinfandels You’ll Want to Drink Right Now.” Our 2015 Lytton Springs was one of the five recommended zinfandels. Here is a quick excerpt from the article:
“California zinfandel can be exciting, especially old-vine field blends that include other grapes such as petite sirah, mataro (mourvedre) and alicante bouschet. The blend is not always explained on the label, but if a wine is truly “old vines” (and there is no specified definition of old), it most likely is not entirely zinfandel. Here are five zins that stood out in my recent tastings, from around California. There’s a variety of price ranges, too. Unfortunately, the top zins have become expensive; that’s because of the rarity of these vineyards and the intensity and quality of the wines they produce.
Ridge is one of the foremost zinfandel producers, featuring single-vineyard bottlings since the 1970s that emphasize expression of place…deep and savory, with impeccable balance and a long finish.”
