Food Pairings for Ridge Petite Sirah Dry Creek Valley Lytton Estate
A very well structured Petite Sirah of intensely deep color complimented by a wonderful aroma on the nose consisting of full fruit, with enough spice from the Zin blend to make you want to drink this wine right now. Once on the tongue, the texture is full and velvety with just the proper tannins, though not over the top. The finish is long and luxurious; the fruit and spice lingering just long enough to confirm how delicious this wine really is. Being full-bodied, I see it going perfectly with Lamb, yet still flexible enough to pair with Beef or Pork. This wine is (more than) ready to drink now, but has sufficient structure to cellar for another 8-12 years. 77% Petite Sirah, 23% Zinfandel

94+ points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): The 2011 Petite Sirah Lytton Estate is fabulous. There is plenty of varietal notes in the glass, but the mid-weight structure is classic Ridge. Dark cherry, plum, smoke, licorice and melted road tar are layered into the explosive finish. The 2011 need some time in the glass for some initially awkward notes to blow off, so readers should be prepared to give the wine quite a bit of air. Drink: 2016-2030. (Jul 2013)
