Winemaker's Notes

This is a rich and full-bodied red wine that blends Cabernet Sauvignon (70%) with Petite Sirah (30%). The winemaker kept each component separate during fermentation. Both were handled gently to minimize bitterness and fermented warm to maximize color and flavor extraction. The Cabernet component was aged one year in new and used American and French oak. The Petite Sirah was cellared in stainless steel to maintain its bright, fresh fruit character. The Clay Station 2001 Cabernet/Petite Sirah is a deep, rich and elegant red wine with complex layers of plum, eucalyptus, blueberry and vanilla. The wine shows a bright black cherry and cassis fruit flavor with a remarkably silky mouthfeel and a long lingering finish.

Learn About Clay Station

Each wine is created from rare or more difficult to grow grape varieties that, when grown properly, exhibit intense fruit character and flavor. Many of these varietals endow other wines with greater character and complexity - but when grown, harvested and made into wine with the utmost care, they can create remarkably flavorful and interesting wines all by themselves.

Clay Station wines are crafted to capture flavors that go well beyond the traditional Chardonnay, Merlot and Cabernet.
