55% Grenache, 25% Zinfandel, 20% Petite Sirah
This 19th-century grenache and petite sirah vines on Lytton Estate’s most southerly hills were harvested in the last weeks of September. In early October, the mixed block of grenache and zinfandel on the adjacent Norton Vineyard ripened fully. As the two completed malolactic, we combined them. The wine’s high, bright berry fruit and elegant structure come in large part from the predominance of old grenache. Appealing now, this vineyard blend will develop beautifully over the next five to seven years. PD (1/95)
