2008 Ridge Vineyards Lytton Estate Syrah Grenache

3g

During a recent lecture, my professor wanted the group to drink a glass of wine during the lecture.  He was looking for a specific bottle of Ridge that I did not have.  I did have a bottle of a 2008 Lytton Estate.  The blend was interesting and both Chris and I enjoyed it very much. Sometimes you have to break the Cabernet Sauvignon cycle and try something new.  I would recommend this wine to everyone.
