Vinous 90: 'Bright, full ruby. Slightly reduced aromas of dark berries, dark chocolate and spices; less expressive and wild than the 2015 version was at the same stage. Concentrated, silky and fine-grained, displaying sexy spice and violet lift to the concentrated dark berry and licorice flavors. I find more sweetness and primary fruit character--and more generosity of texture--than in the 2015 version of this bottling. The long finish hints at chocolatey ripeness but also shows lovely violet lift and a fine dusting of tannins. This needs aeration or a year or two in the cellar to shed its reductive quality.

This was a cherry orchard originally, but it's been redone with vineyards. Kept unracked in oak for 21 months and bottled unfined and unfiltered, this wine is another Cote-Rotie-like look-alike, but with much more floral notes, plenty of black cherry and blackcurrant fruit, and hints of licorice and Provencal herbs.

NAM-1156. 15 RIDGE LYTTON ESTATE DRY CREEK VALLEY PETITE SIRAH
Underground Wine Letter - OUTSTANDING/OUTSTANDING PLUS: ‛Ridge has been making Petite Sirah for nearly 50 years. They know how to deal with the grape to make a wine of great intensity and balance. Starting with a Petite Sirah from Mendocino in 1970, Ridge moved on to making Petite Sirah from York Creek beginning in 1971. From 1971 to 1979 the Ridge York Creek Petite Sirah was made from the oldest vines (planted in 1911) in the Devils Hill section of the York Creek Vineyard which is located in the Spring Mountain district of the Napa Valley. In addition to Petite Sirahs from York Creek, Ridge also worked with old vines Petite Sirah in the Geyserville vineyards as well as in the Lytton Springs vineyards. After the purchase of the original Lytton Springs vineyards in the 1990s Ridge replanted the Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot with Zinfandel and Petite Sirah. By 2002 there was an abundance of Petite Sirah and the first limited quantity bottling of Lytton Estate Petite Sirah was made and sold only from the winery. The 2014 was proclaimed by winemaker John Olney as one of the most elegant ever produced by Ridge and I fully agree. This 2015 Petite Sirah is again stunning. There were 2000 cases produced from 100% Petite Sirah grapes. The wine is dark in color and has a deep blackberry perfume with faint floral spice notes. Rich and full with great intensity and flavor, it has well integrated tannins and is loaded with fruit. Time will yield even more complexity and the wine has decades of life ahead.‛

The estate owned vineyards are situated on the high bench land that overlooks the Dry Creek Valley in Sonoma from the east. After two short crops the vineyard set a full crop in 2016. The production in 2016 was 6000 cases compared with 5000 cases in 2015. The wine has a deep color with a lovely berry perfume accented by an underlying floral briary note. On the palate, it has delicious boysenberry tinged fruit with a briary nuance and a tinge of spice. With very pure and distinctive fruit the wine is delicious now, but will blossom with a few years bottle age. Tasted over several days the wine opened and became more expressive. If you drink it now I would recommend decanting before serving.‛

2016: Wine & Spirits 91: 'Salty and green, with a scent of lime blossom and a savory suite of flavors that are both floral and leafy, this wine runs parallel to the variety as it's grown in Austria but manages to glance off those attributes…green, but in a different way, angular, but not quite the same angle. Uncork for sweet-pea risotto.'

NAM-1370. 15 DR. KONSTANTIN FRANK FINGER LAKES RKATSITELI
Vinous 90: 'The Rkatsiteli variety is of Georgian origin, and is thought to be among the oldest wine grapes in the world. This odd but compelling variety has a long history in the Finger Lakes, as it was among Dr. Frank's original plantings back in the 1950s. A longtime fan favorite, Dr. Frank's Rkatsiteli used to be produced only in tiny quantities, but they have recently expanded the acreage so that the wine can be released into the broader market. This particular vintage boasts a flinty, exotic nose of crushed flowers, white peach, and lemon oil. The palate is light and lifted, with an electric energy and a salted lemon rind quality to the finish.'
