Yup, Jon......I thought it was better than the '09....but that would be quibbling perhaps.
I also think 73 angels can dance on the head of a pin.
You can't go wrong w/ either one. I was taken by the '10 because of the incredible spiciness it showed when
we tried it. But, 10 yrs down the road....who knows??

Well...Patrick...off the top of my head, I don't think I can answer those questions. I'd have to go back thru all
my TN's to the early '70's. Those early ones are not archived in e-form, so I'd have to wade thru 4-5 thick paper volumes.
It'd take me a whole day. Sorry....don't think I'm up to that.
Off the top of my head. I'd say the '73 Geyserville was my favorite of all time. But that one was from a different vnyd, not the TrentadueRanch,
as all the rest of them have been.
Of the LS, perhaps the '74.
Bear in mind that those wines were made in a far different style than the Ridges are nowadays.

Thanks!!! I have 6 to pick up. Maybe I need more.

I'm finding Lytton and Geyserville much harder to get in Boston recently. I'm being told that a higher % is going to restaurants. Not sure if that's true.

I don't know the exact release dates but Lytton is released in the Fall (Sept/Oct) and Geyserville in the Spring (March/April). The 2010 LS is definitely in the marketplace but there doesn't seem to be much of it around.

I just saw a bunch of it at Wine Discount Center in Chicago. A few bottles did find their way back to my cellar...
