Generous aromas of blackberry, pepper, bacon fat, rose petal, and licorice followed by black raspberry, black tea, orange zest, Madagascar vanilla and sage on the palate. Excellent mid-palate weight with a lingering finish. SR (1/23)
Ridge first made Syrah from Lytton Estate in 1996. Recognizing that the site is well suited to the variety, we planted more syrah as well as smaller amounts of grenache and mataro. In 2014 we combined these three varieties to make our first Syrah Grenache Mataro, appealing for its spicy aroma and sensuous fruit. Lower yields in 2020 resulted in a wine with greater structure that will evolve over the next eight years. JO (4/22)
