The 2017 Petite Syrah Lytton Estate is another superb wine from Ridge's Lytton ranch. Inky dark fruit and expressive savory notes infuse this bombastic, heady Petite with tremendous nuance and surprising freshness. The 2017 is very young at this stage, but it clearly has the structure to age. My impression is that it will be even better once some of the baby fat melts away. Even today, though, the 2017 is superb.

The inky colored 2017 Petite Sirah Lytton Estate (94% Petite Sirah and 6% Zinfandel) comes all from the Lytton Estate in the Dry Creek Valley. It has a powerful bouquet of spice plums, blackberries, scorched earth, and chocolate that gives way to a medium to full-bodied, ripe, opulent red with the depth and density to keep for 10-15 years. It has plenty of upfront baby fat, so give it a year or two of bottle age.
