(Spoiler Alert: This post is about the Fall Release Event at Lytton Springs on 9.10.11!)
There are a lot of things going on at Lytton Springs right now.
For example, as I write this, many miles away in the wilds of Santa Cruz, the moon is probably rising in the brightly dusking sky above the Healdsburg vineyards …
And when the sun rises tomorrow, the Lytton grapes will again be in full swing, and looking beautiful …
And just as there are new vintages emerging on the vines, so too are there new vintages emerging in the bottle …
The 2009 Lytton Springs is dropping. And rising. Dropping and Rising. Dropping mad science like Galileo dropped the orange.
Or, put another way, Three. It’s the magic number.
2009 Ridge Vineyards Lytton Springs
2009 Ridge Vineyards Pagani Ranch
2009 Ridge Vineyards York Creek
Three. It’s the magic number. No more, no less.
Now you may try to subtract it
But it just won’t go away
Three times one?
(What is it? )
(One, two, three! )
And that’s the magic number
Three new vintages, three new zinfandels. All part of the Fall Release Celebration. You were just here, won’t you, at Monte Bello? And you’re just about there, aren’t you, at Lytton Springs?
Lord knows you ought to be; this is gon’ be special … And,we’re celebrating the release of not only the three zinfandels above, but also new Monte Bello vintages; both Cabernet and Chardonnay!
