The grapes for this vintage were hand picked and sorted for quality in the
vineyard. the final blend was chosen after numerous tasting sessions. The grapes from the Jardine vineyard contribute dense, dark fruit with great tannin structure. The Creston Valley Vineyard adds touches of minerality, while Huerhuero adds dark color, fresh berry aromas and spicy characteristics. a percentage of Syrah from Cammatta Hills brings flesh and body to the blend. together, they create a wine displaying complexity, structure and balance.
"Glass-staining purple. Exotic perfume of blackberry, blueberry, star anise, violet and musky herbs. Sweet and velvety, offering vivid dark berry flavors accented by floral and cracked pepper qualities. Gains weight and power with air but maintains an energetic personality, finishing with very good clarity and spicy persistence."

A remarkable value, this big and bold California wine presents luscious fruit with strong notes of berry, licorice, a hint of anise and a long finish and delightful elegance.
There's nothing subtle about this wine. Petite Sirah is one of those wines that when I decide I am in the mood, I won't drink anything else until I get one. This is a great, well done Petite Sirah, and includes everything you love about the grape. Deep, dark berry and cooked fruit flavors; blueberry pie, and crushed violets. There is a peppery spice note that follows through the finish. A great bottle of wine.

What a value. Let it breath and it is a nice Petite for under $20. Dark and rich with flavor. I have no problem serving to anyone
