Winemaker's Notes:

Deepest plum color with beautiful purple robe. Intriguing nose of pomegranate, mulberry, figs and incense. A rich mouthful of ripe Damson plum, cranberry, pomegranate, blueberry, dried wild herbs and smokey bacon. Exceptional balance, verve and elegance. Long finish with savoury spice and fine-grained tannins. Petite Sirah is called "Pets" by veteran growers like Ken Wilson. So we dedicate this wine to his pet- Tanker. Dark colored, long legged and bold, we feel this wine has potential of becoming your best friend. A portion of the profits from this wine is donated to our local animal shelter!

About Vinum Cellars:

Vinum Cellars is a collaboration of winemakers Richard Bruno and Chris Condos, who first became friends while they were students at UC Davis. They share a long standing passion for Chenin Blanc and fondness for the more obscure grape varieties. After graduation, Chris went to work for Pine Ridge as Enologist, and Richard went to Bonny Doon as their distiller. Shortly after, their friendship was solidified over Chenin Blanc with the creation of their first wine "Pointe Blanc". Currently the Vinum Cellars team is working with over 10 grape varieties from Placer County Cabernet Franc to San Benito County Viognier. In addition to the Vinum Cellars partnership, they are employed as winemakers: Chris with Kathryn Kennedy Winery and Richard as a Napa winemaking consultant.
