Winemaker's Notes:

Created from fruit squeezed from our best Petite Sirah blocks in Guenoc Valley, our 2004 Lake County Petite Sirah was aged in a combination of French oak and American oak barrels for 18 months. This elegant wine is dark, rich and concentrated with luscious blackberry, spice and licorice flavors. The rich and chewy tannins are a meal in the mouth, and the overall impression is one of balance. The wine pairs well with Beef Bourguignon or other hearty meat dishes.

About Langtry Estate & Vineyards:

For well over one hundred years, intrepid travelers have trekked over Howell Mountain to reach our Guenoc Valley winery. Langtry Estate & Vineyards property is vast, encompassing some thirty-five square miles of epic terrain, where untamed flora and fauna still abound.

The picturesque estate consists of 21,349 acres and straddles both Lake and Napa Counties where cougar, bear and wild boar still roam the remote hills. Despite the vastness, Langtry's vineyards are limited to 400 prime acres, ensuring the highest quality.

Langtry Estate & Vineyards currently produces approximately 120,000 cases of wine annually with distribution throughout the United States. From cane to canopy, to rootstock and clone, Langtry Estate believes that the signature of the wine remains in the soil and climate and in varietals chosen for their synergy with the land.

While Langtry has enjoyed significant critical success, the winery has emerged as one of the top producers of two of the hottest varietal wines on the market today, Petite Sirah and Sauvignon Blanc. Each year, Langtry ranks among the top medal winning wineries at professional wine competitions, and the winery's Petite Sirah has won more gold medals and best of show awards than any other Petite Sirah in the world.
