2010 Ridge Vineyards "Lytton Estate" Dry Creek Valley Petite Sirah

SKU #1117369 89 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark Not quite so ripe as its predecessor from 2009 and employing a few others grapes in its mix, the new Ridge Lytton Estate conveys a fine sense of fruity freshness and youthful vitality. It is medium-full bodied and has a coverlet of varietal tannin without being particularly tannic per se, and its overall balance and build are those of a wine that will be a comfortable partner to food once a few years have passed. Inner quote mark (7/2012)

K&L Notes

The Petite Sirah vines at Ridge's Lytton Estate (some dating back to 1901) have only recently become more widely available as a single-varietal bottling. Long included in the primarily Zinfandel-based Lytton Springs bottling, this wine (with a small percentage of Zin, Syrah, and Peloursin) is sure to satisfy the small but dedicated following of California Petite Sirah as well as other curious wine drinkers. It was aged for 14 months in 15% new American oak. From the winery: "Intense aromas of pepper, floral (lilys), vanilla and bacon fat. Focused blackberry fruit on the palate balanced by full but elegant tannins, firm acidity and a minerally finish."
