The 2019 Lytton Springs is another embryonic wine in this range. Readers will have to be patient. Time in the glass brings out an exotic mélange of rose petal, blood orange, pomegranate and star anise, all wrapped together by plush, silky tannins. There is a lot of wine here. Healthy dollops of Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Carignane and Mataro round out the blend, but the Zinfandel is pretty expressive in the leading role. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, May 2022)

I decanted knowing this was way too young. But found it balanced and drinking well. As usual, I suspect depth and character will develop with patience. 375ml.

Pepper on the nose; fruit is subtle compared to the Blasi and more complex. Still feels young

The 2019 has had some time to develop and it’s ready to drink now, but it can benefit from 2 years in cellar. Notes of cherry and blueberry, very subtle smoky aftertaste. Very strong aroma, that translates nicely on the palate.

Surprisingly muted. Was expecting more flavor and aromas. But not as good as precious vintages. Will let the next bottle open up more.

Nice smells of plums, black cherries and black currant jam. Black cherry in the mouth with some soft tannins. Very nice.
