2020 Ridge Vineyards Lytton Springs Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley California USA
Rich blackberry and plum on the nose with notes of aniseed. Full-bodied with dark bramble fruit and well-coated tannins on the palate. The long finish reveals layers of black licorice and dried sage.
Blend: 79% Zinfandel, 11% Petite Sirah, 10% Carignane
Rated 95 Points James Suckling
This has lots of horizontal tannins that provide fine muscle and form. It's medium- to full-bodied with freshness and brightness. Red berries, crushed cloves and other spices. Grapey, for a better word. Sophisticated. Chewy, Needs time to soften. Zinfandel with petite sirah and carignan.
