Ridge Vineyards – Lytton Springs 2011 – Dry Creek Valley – Sonoma

(82% Zinfandel, 16% Petite Sirah, 2% Carignan) The nose reveals notes of blueberry, raspberry and slight notes of black berries associated with slight woody notes as well as small notes of spice and Sichuan pepper. The palate is fruity, balanced, suave and offers a fresh frame and a certain concentration. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of cherry jam, black fruits (cassis …) and slight notes of blueberry (in background) associated with slight notes of black olive, oaky notes, spicy notes and a touches of chocolate. Tannins are well-made and integrated. Good length.
