Winemaker's Notes

This wine is a perfect example of why we are seeing a resurgence of interest in this historic grape variety. Grown on old world head pruned vines in the Napa Valley, the fruit in this wine is brimming with blueberry and raspberry character with a touch of pepper. On the palate the wine is surprisingly soft while retaining the mouth filling tannins and body for which our Petite Sirah is justly renowned. The middle of the wine shows multiple levels of flavor with a rich silky mouth feel. The finish is smooth and shows an excellent balance of soft tannins and ripe fruit.
