Natalie's Score: 96/100

Very smooth and approachable now though it will also do well in the cellar. Full-bodied and smooth with luscious fleshy ripe blackberries and plums. Big black fruit and oak. Chary, toasty, smoky. Pair with filet mignon.

Food pairings: meatloaf, lentil patties, Italian style pizza, salami, veal shanks, charcuterie, soft cheeses.

Reviews and Ratings

California Ridge Lytton Springs (2014) is medium-plus bodied 69% Zinfandel, 18% Petite Sirah, 11% Carignane, 2% Mataro (Mourvedre) red wine blend. In fact, the wine is almost purple in the glass. On the nose, lots of plum, blackberry and sweet spice, and on the palate, layers of blackberries, blueberries, plum and mocha and minty herbs. Decant prior to serving with gourmet burgers or hold in cellar for 10 more years. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
