Sonoma Magazine recommends 2016 Lytton Estate Petite Sirah as a hearty red wine that’s a great mate for roasted and braised meats:
Ridge Vineyards 2016 Lytton Estate Dry Creek Valley Petite Sirah
Ridge’s Geyserville winery outpost is best known for Zinfandel, many of which have a splash of Petite Sirah in them. This 100 percent varietal wine deserves standalone status, for its savory character, well-mannered plum, blackberry, and blueberry fruit, and silky texture not often found in wines made from the muscular, not-so-Petite grape. Braised short ribs and chicken mole would be great mates.
