Hard to find, my wine key is...

Ridge Vineyards

Lytton Estate Dry Creek Valley Syrah Viognier 2013

This is fucking right now. Gorgeous, enough hedonistic quality but retains balance and complexity. Smoked BBQ ribs, roasted coffee, mesquite charcoal, bacon fat, talcum, leather, vanilla, mulberry compote with a hint of overripe blue fruit. It has sinew and grit, but there’s appropriate richness on the palate to balance its structure. Tannins are a touch drying, but I love the character that brings to it. Young but to good now, properly stored I could see this hitting 20 years no problem. Perfect with a bacon cheeseburger w/ grilled onion. Curious how ‘15 and ‘16 vintages will stack up. — 2 days ago

Solminer makes an interesting orange Gruner with skin contact that you might enjoy.

I will check it out when I come across it. This was an impromptu tasting over lunch when a Rep. stoped by in a Restaurant.

Rattlesnake Ridge Petite Syrah 2012

Quite an evolved nose - flowers, fruit, funk. You smell it across the room. And boy the tannins still hit hard. They coat the glass. — 20 days ago
