Tasting Notes

Very inky color with aromas of blackberry, and plum. Flavors are rich and concentrated, with a lush blackberry fruit entry, full-bodied, and a dense, rich, tannic finish.

100% Petite Sirah

Vineyard Notes

2013 was a superb growing season yielding high quality across both white and red grape varietals. It began with a mild winter and spring, with very little rainfall. This yielded balanced vineyard canopies and average crop size, with excellent concentration of flavors. Early bud break due to mild spring temperatures led to a harvest that started several weeks earlier than for the previous few vintages. The grapes matured slowly but steadily, achieving full flavor development and tannin maturity, two things we winemakers look for in determining the optimal pick date for our grapes.
