"Opened and poured at Sam's, One of the best Zinfandels I've had, however Zin. blend as only 79% Zinfandel. Great no food wine, coconut aromas, slightly sweet, complex, no Zinfandel heat, yummy! 91+pts."

"Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine Volume 30 Issue 7: May 2006 95 Taking its accustomed place at the head of the class, this year's Lytton Springs bottling from Ridge is a textbook example of the deep and expressive fruit that marks Dry Creek Zinfandel at its best. It is an optimally ripened wine that has range and richness without being in the least compromised by heat, and its careful use of complementary oak and its fine sense of structure make it a most impressive Zinfandel for everyday use as a most tasty and ageworthy table wine.
