The new 2008 Lytton Estate Syrah/Grenache arrives in our Tasting Rooms THIS WEEKEND!

In the Zone with the Bone on SpeakerPhone, settin’ skills on Hone, takin’ the Throne on Loan from the Combat Zone, and Prone to Condone the Rhone!

Meaning, one of my all-time favorite Ridge releases is due to unveil its new vintage in our Tasting Rooms this weekend!

Ladies and Gentlemen, may I present, the new 2008 Lytton Estate Syrah/Grenache!

Decanting now …


Purple-flowing love ink in the crystal; violet and magenta and deliciousness …

Set sensorial aromatica on stun; lavender and lilac and grape and Maine blueberry slump and supine fineness …

Mood indigo, thy blanket wraps my tongue; the blue flatted third; deep, deep, deep, all this ridiculous beauty …

A giant of a wine; a towering, beautiful, giant, a wine pirate, a swashbuckling rogue in exotic finery, flying a blue flag atop a black sea …

One word.
