This, our twenty-fifth vintage of Lytton Springs,
marks the completion of the new, sustainable
winery, and the first time we have made the
wine on the estate where it is grown. From
1972 to 1976, and again from 1984 to 2002,
we picked early in the morning and trucked
the grapes to Monte Bello—three hours away.
This year's short crop and intense September
heat caused the fruit to ripen all at once. Tannins were highly extractable, so almost half
the grapes were left uncrushed, and the number
of pump-overs was reduced. As malolactic
fermentation finished, we assembled the
finest and most typical lots, and racked to
barrel. After twelve months in air-dried american
oak, the wine was fined with nine egg
whites per barrel, balancing firm structure
and sensuous fruit. This classic Lytton Springs
is enjoyable now. It will soften with a year or
two in bottle, and develop fully over the next
eight to ten years.

The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...Read More About Napa Valley
Zinfandel the American - or Californian - grape. Although it's not from America
(Croatia has been named its origin),
it does seem quite at home in the vineyards of California.
During Prohibition, many
