Vinous 96 Pts.
“The 2018 Lytton Springs is magnificent. Elegant, layered and so complete, the 2018 has a lot to offer, but it needs time to fully come together. Sweet red cherry, red plum, blood orange, spice, mint and rose petal open up in the glass. Bright acids and beams of tannin give the wine its vibrant energy. Readers should plan on cellaring the 2018 for at least a few years. Wow!”
Jeb Dunnuck 92 Pts.
Checking in as 72% Zinfandel, 18% Petite Sirah, 8% Carignan, and the rest Mourvdre, the 2018 Lytton Springs has a more nuanced, complex style that builds nicely with time in the glass. Red plums, mulberries, flowery incense, cedar, and a kiss of chocolate all define the bouquet, and this beauty hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, a seamless, elegant texture (which is the hallmark of this vintage), and ample chalky minerality on the finish. Its going to benefit from a year or three of bottle age and shine for over a decade. Ive had this cuve with 20+ years of bottle age and it ages surprisingly well. -Jeb Dunnuck (August 2020)
