LYTTON SPRINGS

The second of Ridge’s old-vine Zinfandel blends to be introduced, Lytton Springs follows a similar approach to express a different terroir via a slightly different varietal mix. With a denser soil and higher proportion of Petite Sirah, Lytton Springs is a richer, earthier, more tannic wine. Like Geyserville, it can age well into its second decade and often beyond.
