Lytton Springs is a famous single vineyard in Dry Creek Valley with vines up to 100 years (!) old. The plants grow as unguided 'bush vines' low to the ground. The poor siliceous and clayey soil ensures naturally low yields (average 30 hl/ha) and excellent concentration in the grapes. The inky colored Petite Sirah Lytton Estate has juicy aromas and flavors of dark/black fruits, vanilla, smoky notes and leather. The Ridge Petit Sirah is elegant and graceful with beautiful tannins. It is not a blockbuster but an elegant wine which is special for a Sirah. The aftertaste is spicy, long and complex. Fine to drink now, but if you want to put it away for another 15 years, that's fine too.
