Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Winemaker's Notes

The 2012 vintage shows textbook Petite Sirah color with an inky purple hue. The aromatics show notes of intense blueberry, dark cherry reduction, violets, and vanilla bean. Once again, the flavors start sweet and then get darker on the finish. This blend starts with blueberry pie, blackberry, sweet purple basil, and dark caramel. The wine finishes with dark molasses, toasted cedar plank, sweetened dried cherries, and mocha coffee.

This is a great grilling wine. Serve with burgers topped with carmelized onions and BBQ sauce, sticky ribs, or grilled chicken alongside sweet potato fries and coleslaw.

Critical Acclaim

"Value Alert! Super ripe, with a violet-blueberry sweetness up front, then peppered, leathery tannins march in to stain and conquer. A distant spice clips at each sip but is softened by a bright raspberry tartness. For an everyday wine, this is a full-flavored, varietally correct treat. "
