This is our tenth vintage of petite sirah from Lytton Estate. The majority of the fruit comes from the clay-rich soils at Lytton West. Here, petite sirah thrives, producing small-berried clusters with intense color. All of the grapes were destemmed but left to ferment as whole berries to manage tannins and enhance fruit. This full-bodied wine will age nicely over the next fifteen years.
