Such a good wine. Especially for the price. Rich and sophisticated. Plums and cherry, leather and licorice. Lots going on. Nice tanin grip. Delicious.

Pulled back somewhat. Became a bit green with time in the glass.

Wow. Stunning expression of fruit and earth, medium finish and integrated tannins. Fruit forward, but enough structure and seriousness to study every sip.

Maybe one of the best young Lytton Springs I’ve had. Wonderful and mouth-filling fruit, just enough sinew, spiced, great perfume, balanced oak (albeit young still), fresh acid and earthy charm. Balanced and should stay that way for some time, would love to see at the 10-15 year mark. Ripe black raspberry, wild blackberry jam, yellow peach yogurt, vanilla, dried meat, flowers, cloves, mint and clay. Nice length. A touch wound up but plenty of generosity to drink now.

A bit fruitier and lighter than the Geyserville for me. Goes down easy!

Young, oaky and wound up, but with serious potential. Needs a year to integrate.

The utilitarian in me really appreciates the Ridge labels. Second time I’ve had this wine and I really enjoy it. Cherries and anise.

Never ceases to amaze me the refinement of these huge Cali stunners.

Could use a bit of time - though not a crime to drink with at least 30 min of air. Unmistakable Zin - big fruit and spice. Thoroughly enjoyable and a wine that doesn’t require a high IQ to enjoy.
