PRODUCT OVERVIEW:
Today's offer is a blend of 69% Zinfandel, 23% Petite Sirah, 6% Carignane, and 2% Mataro (Mourvèdre) aged for 14 months in a combination of new and seasoned American oak barrels. In true Ridge fashion, it manages to be both opulent and elegant, complex and approachable, drinkable now yet age-worthy. 

95 points, Vinous Media: 
“The 2016 Lytton Springs is a powerful, dense wine. Black cherry, plum, lavender, new leather, cloves, licorice and menthol flesh out. Deep, plush and richly textured, the 2016 Lytton Springs packs a real punch. The 23% Petite Sirah is felt in the wine’s darkness and overall gravitas. There is more than enough richness and structure to support many years of fine drinking. What a gorgeous wine this is.” (August 2018)

94 points, James Suckling:
“This blend of 69% Zinfandel, 23% Petite Sirah, 6% Carignane, and 2% Mataro has an x-factor attraction, in that all components are elevating each other to greater heights. The sum is more than the parts. Attractive red berries with blackberries, blackcurrants, and red plums, too. This is assertively structured and will deliver best from 2022.” (November 2018)

94 points, Jeb Dunnuck:
“Another winner is the 2016 Lytton Springs, a Zinfandel-dominated blend that includes 23% Petite Sirah, 6% Carignane, and 2% Mourvèdre. This medium to full-bodied effort has wonderful purity of fruit as well as slightly more density in its black and blue fruits, earth, and dried spices. With bright acidity and ripe tannins, it will be better with another year or three of bottle age and keep for 15-20.” (February 2019)

92+ points, The Wine Advocate: 
“The 2016 Lytton Springs is excellent, offering up aromas of crushed currants, plums, candied violets, and baked clay. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, rich and youthfully chewy, with a crunchy core of fruit and fine-grained but firm structuring tannins.” (May 2018)

92 points, Wine Spectator: “Recalls the tasty red field blends of yore, showing briary cherry, grilled anise and cracked pepper flavors that finish with slightly rustic tannins. Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Carignane, and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2025.”  (Oct 2018)
