This wine is deep dark and more concentrated versus the 2015 with less overt fruit. The nose is dark and deep with currant and black cherries that give way to crushed rocks and light spice. The palate has a tannic grip to it with black fruits, graphite and just there pepper. With air this gains strength and presence and the fruit really starts to come out. D&M Tasting Notes
Lytton Estate. The 2016 Petite Syrah Lytton Springs is another fabulous wine in this range. Dense and powerful, the 2016 is endowed with striking depth and tons of character. The Petite tannins are nicely tamed in a wine that offers superb quality and pedigree. Creme de cassis, graphite, lavender and mint are front and center. The 2016 remains quite primary though, so readers need to be patient. 94 Points Antonio Galloni, Vinous August 2018.
