2015 Ridge ‘Lytton Estate’ Syrah Grenache Mataro Sonoma
Winemaker Notes: For our second release of this Rhone-style varietal blend, we selected grapes from three closely planted parcels at our Lytton West vineyard. The grapes were destemmed, but left to ferment as whole berries to moderate tannins and accentuate fruit. Syrah adds color and dark fruit while mataro and grenache contribute structure and aroma. Enjoyable on release, this wine will continue to evolve for another five to six years.
TASTING NOTES: Blackberry, currant, dark cherry, and mocha on the nose. Layers of blueberry, dried plum, and clove on entry. Full bodied with coated tannins. Finish is long, with notes of black pepper and brown spice. Pairs well with braised lamb, cassoulet, or crispy pork belly.
35% Syrah, 23% Grenache, 42% Mataro
