Tasting Notes

Wine Reviews

Ridge “Lytton Estate” Petite Sirah

Huge, even flamboyant, on the palate, with juicy black fruits, blackberry and elderberry, smoke, the darkest chocolate, and vanilla, all kept just barely in control by firm, structured tannins. Drink with marvelous wine with equally marvelous local lamb. Highly Recommended. 94 points.

Shafer Merlot

Smooth tannins and tart red fruit create marvelous balance and beg for locally-sourced and perfectly seared lamb chops. Very Highly Recommended. 95 points.
