Ridge Lytton Estate Petite Sirah 2019

Sonoma County, California, United StatesYoung petite sirah can be a beast, but not at Ridge, where balance is the mantra and vines are old (some date to 1901). In 2019 the lush rich black fruit with chocolate and a mineral undercurrent coat the senses from front to back. The palate is more of the same with a dusting of savoury garrigue notes. The acidity is perfectly tuned, and this wine will effortlessly age through 2023, if not beyond. If you must drink it now, think lamb chops.Tasted: 10 October 2022Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
