Ridge 2011 Petite Sirah, Lytton Estate, Cry Creek Valley, Sonoma County, CA
Wine Advocate rating: 89..."One of this estate’s iconic offerings is their Petite Sirah Lytton Estate. The 2011 (100% Petite Sirah aged 14 months in American oak) exhibits a dense ruby/purple color as well as a primary, grapy notes of blueberries and black raspberries, soft tannins and a surprisingly upfront, forward character. Still one-dimensional and undeveloped, this 2011 should evolve quickly given the vintage and Ridge’s style. It should last for a decade."
