Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

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 characteristic Clarksburg Petite Sirah varietal that compromises the majority of this wine displays dark aromas of wild blueberry, black licorice and purple plum. 80% of the wine was aged on French oak promoting notes of caramelized vanilla bean. The remainder of the oak is Hungarian, which enhances characteristic notes of gaminess such as mushroom and tobacco leaf. This deeply expressive wine fills the palate with flavors of blackberry jam and dried cherry, mingling effortlessly with cinnamon bark and molasses. The mouth-coating tannins add structure and complexity to this full-bodied Petite Sirah, while the 6% Pinot Noir adds a layer of plush, round and supple flavors. This wine pairs nicely with olive tapenade on grilled bread, rack of lamb marinated with aromatic herbs or even dark chocolate lava cake.

Critical Acclaim

"On the nose: grilled meat, chocolate and blue fruit. But the first sip is an indulgence of tannic blackness with hints of violets and blueberries...which seem to be sepping through that tannic wall in a gritty fashion."

Style: Earth & Spicy
This is my new favorite everyday Petite Sirah. Fuller than most in a similar price range with large amount of deeper fruit flavors and notes of pepper. Beef Jerky notes kept popping in my head as I poured another glass. Thanks Wilfred for turning me on to this!

Dark berry and cream nose, fruit intense first notes with concentrated dried fruits then caramel creaminess with brown sugary/maple undertones. I have fudgey brownies fresh baked earlier today and will be saving some of this to go with them later for dessert.
