Ridge Lytton Estate Petite Sirah 2019


Sold Out

“A wine of weight and substance, the 2019 Petite Syrah Lytton Estate is fabulous. Best of all, readers won’t have to contend with huge Petite tannins, as those have been handled admirably. Black cherry, plum, exotic spice, leather, tobacco and incense infuse the 2019 with tons of complexity. There’s plenty of supporting structure, but the tannins are pretty much buried. What a wine. Drinking window: 2024-2039. 95 points

Readers will find a number of terrific wines among these new releases from Ridge. Over the last few years Ridge has expanded their offerings, which means the highlights aren’t always the usual suspects. I have kept drinking windows compact for the 2020s out of an abundance of caution. Other than that, there’s not much left to say other than there’s plenty to like.”
