Saturated garnet-red color. Initial nose is restrained, showing dark berry fruit, clay earth, gaminess, fennel, and pepper. It opens up on entry showing rich blackberry fruit, roasted vegetables, prosciutto, fennel, and great length to its finish. This has superb aging potential. EB (2/20)
A mild winter prompted early bud-break. Late April storms disrupted set, reducing yields by half. Harvested in September, destemmed whole berries of syrah and viognier co-fermented. The wine finished malolactic in barrel and got extended time on the gross lees. This superb vintage shows intense fruit and the minerality of the sub-soils at Lytton Estate. Drinkable now, it will develop fully in ten years.
