In 1972, Ridge made its first Lytton Springs from vines planted on the eastern half of the vineyard at the turn of the century. Both the eastern and western portions of the vineyard were purchased in the early 1990s. The vineyard is planted to Zinfandel and its principal complementary varieties.

Total rainfall was plentiful and summer was mild, resulting in excellent quality and quantity when the grapes were hand-harvested between 10 September and 14 October. The grapes were crushed and fermentation proceeded with natural yeast. After eleven days, the must was pressed off. The wine was aged for 14 months in air-dried American oak barrels, with 15% new wood.

Moderate summer temperatures allowed for slow ripening. Pickers waited until mid-September to ensure all the varieties were ready. Twenty-four blocks were blended, including two pure Petite Sirah blocks, to add structure to the abundant Zinfandel fruit. Enjoyable young, this outstanding wine will gain in complexity over ten to fifteen years.
