2016 Ridge Vineyards "Lytton Estate" Dry Creek Valley Petite Sirah

SKU #1374522 94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Petite Syrah Lytton Springs is another fabulous wine in this range. Dense and powerful, the 2016 is endowed with striking depth and tons of character. The Petite tannins are nicely tamed in a wine that offers superb quality and pedigree. Crème de cassis, graphite, lavender and mint are front and center. The 2016 remains quite primary though, so readers need to be patient. (AG) 94+ Inner quote mark (8/2018)

93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This exuberant variety is tamed into a very composed and polished style with an array of ripe red plums, mulberries and boysenberries. Super chalky and crunchy tannins here. This is a superb wine. Pure Petite Sirah. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (11/2018)

K&L Notes

With some blocks of vines over 115 years of age - Ridge's Lytton Estate Petite Sirah is one of the finest examples of the variety you'll find anywhere. If you enjoy big, powerful, structured wines you can enjoy this bottle right now; however this wine also has immense ageing potential so keep a few in the cellar too. (Ryan Woodhouse - K&L Domestic Wine Buyer) Winemaker Notes: "Opaque purple in color, smoky and minerally on the nose. Well coated tannins integrate on the palate with black currant and plum fruit. Finishes with notes of eucalyptus and mint."
