The oldest petite sirah vines on our Lytton Estate were planted in 1901 and the
youngest in 1998. We made our first wine from the property in 1972 and until 2002
when we bottled portions of the petite sirah as a separate wine for a limited release,
it had always been included in the Lytton Springs Zinfandel. In 2003 we made a another
limited release and in 2009 our first national release.
Winemaker Tasting Notes
Vanilla, cedar, orange blossom and black olive on the nose; deep blue/black color, dense and
full with black currant fruit and chalky, tightly woven tannins on the palate.
