" Deep ruby in color, showing ripe plum fruit, spice, briar and plenty of Dry Creek earth aromas. On the palate, there are notes of pepper, dried briar leaf, black and red licorice. Rich, lively, elegant, with chalky tannins and fantastic length, the 2002 Lytton is full-bodied, yet well-defined, its layers of fruit readily apparent. Approachable when young, this excellent zinfandel will continue to mature over the next ten years. 75% zinfandel, 20% petit sirah and 5% carignane."

93 points "One of the most famous names in Zinfandel-land is Lytton Springs, and Ridge’s 2002 Lytton Springs (75% Zinfandel, 20% Petite Sirah, and 5% Carignan) boasts a deep ruby/purple hue along with a big, sweet nose of briery, blueberry, and blackberry fruit, full body, good acidity, and notions of pepper, loamy earth, and licorice. While this beauty will undoubtedly last a decade, it should be at its finest over the next 5-6 years." Best 2005-2011
