For this week’s issue of our Light on Lytton series, we’re quite literally going to show you … the Light at Lytton!
The following is a picture that was taken by Jamie Bakas, who happens to be married to Rick Bakas, who happens to be the social media heavyweight at St. Supery; both were at Lytton Springs Saturday night for our TasteLive/TweetUp, and she snapped it in between sips of our new Fall Release zinfandels. If you follow her tweets (and you should! @jaimiebakas), you’ll see that while she seemed to love the new 2008 Pagani Ranch best, she was in her “happy place” when she tasted the 2007 Monte Bello, a little unannounced treat that Sandy pulled out!
If you’d like to see what others had to say about the tasting, just use your favorite Twitter ap — I prefer TweetDeck — and search #ridgewines, and you’ll see a great stream of thoughts and observations by Rick and Jamie, Meg Houston Maker (makerstable.com), Lenn Thompson (lenndevours.com/newyorkcorkreport.com), Carrie Becker (thechicagoist.com), Amy Cleary (winebookgirl.com), and more!
Anyhow, now for a little Light on Lytton:
