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 Littons 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. . Hand-harvested, sustainably grown, estate grapes; destemmed and crushed; fermented on the native yeasts, followed by full malolactic on the naturally occurring bacteria; tartaric acid; oak from barrel aging; minimum effective sulfur for this wine (35 ppm at crush, 61 ppm over the course of aging); pad filtered at bottling. In keeping with our philosophy of minimal intervention, this is the sum of our actions. . . The Ridge Vineyards Lytton Springs Zinfandel has an appealing nose of pepper, and raspberry. Layered plum, blackberry and cocoa on the palate with chalky tannins and a lingering finish. . . .
