2017 Ridge Lytton Estate Petite Syrah
Vintage : 2017
Country : USA
Region : California
Varietal : Red Wine
This is our tenth vintage of petite sirah from Lytton Estate. The majority of the fruit comes from the clay-rich soils at Lytton West. Here, petite sirah thrives, producing small-berried clusters with intense color. All of the grapes were destemmed but left to ferment as whole berries to manage tannins and enhance fruit. This full-bodied wine will age nicely over the next fifteen years.
Deep dark purplish-black color, peppery, floral aromas. Full bodied with rich layered plum and fig fruit on the palate. Well coated tannins and a long minerally finish. JO (7/19)
