Drink Insider’s Terry Lozoff lauds Ridge Lytton Estate Syrah as one of California’s “truly remarkable” Syrahs in The Rise of California Syrah.
“Ridge is continuously looked to as a leader in California wine. However, their Cabernets and Zinfandel-lead blends are what they are best known for. But, my recommendations is to dig deeper into their portfolio where you’ll find some exceptional Rhone-varietal wines. Especially their Lytton Estate Syrah. Another Côte-Rôtie-esque Syrah made with 10% Viognier, and aged for 24 months in barrel. Rich brambly fruit meets violet, game, leather and spice. Great with grilled lamb. 92 points”
