Winemaker's Notes

The cooler 2011 vintage yielded an elegant Petite Sirah, scented with the varietal's signature trio of black fruit, floral and spicy characteristics. Fresh, juicy flavors of blackberry and blueberry are complemented by generous spice notes of clove and pepper with a subtle hint of rose petal. Refined and supple tannins balance the wine's powerful palate, keeping this Petite Sirah particularly graceful.

Critical Acclaim

"Dark and juicy with bright plum and berry fruit; big but not overpowering; nicely balanced, ripe and tangy; long and actually showing finesse. "
