Winemaker Notes

Our Petite Sirah comes from the lowest site on our vineyard, approximately 1100 feet elevation, a site with large river rocks in the soil. The wine boasts a dense, almost black color. Aromas of fresh tilled earth enhance the full-bodied palate. Dark fruit and hints of white pepper intensify the long, almost never ending finish.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2012 Petite Sirah was picked October 21 after one of the latest budbreaks on record. It has a more extrovert bouquet than the Syrah with blackcurrant, blueberry, Provençal herbs and tertiary aromas that gain more and more intensity in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit, well-judged acidity, clean and pure with an intense, almost heady spicy finish that lingers long in the mouth. This is a great example of a rarely seen grape variety.

As the the largest region in the greater Southern Oregon AVA, bordering California, the Rogue Valley AVA grows the most diverse array of grape varieties compared to any other Oregon appellation.

The Rogue Valley AVA is actually made up of three adjacent river valleys—not just one as its name suggests—Bear Creek, Applegate and Illinois. These valleys extend from the foothills of the Siskiyou Mountains, a coastal sub range of the Klamath Mountains. Most Rogue Valley vineyards are planted on hillsides at elevations of 1,200 to 2,000 feet where soils are metamorphic, sedimentary and volcanic.

On one end Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Tempranillo, Syrah and Sauvignon Blanc benefit from a warm and dry climate. To the west end of the Rogue Valley, cool-climate grapes like Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Riesling, Muscat and Gewürztraminer do best. Dolcetto, Grenache and Zinfandel also grow in the Rogue Valley AVA.

Early European settlers first started growing grapes here in the 1840s, the most famous of whom was a pioneer named, Peter Britt. He also opened Oregon’s first official winery (which later closed in 1907). Today, besides its great wines, the region is known for the Britt Music & Arts festival, which inhabits Peter Britt’s former hillside estate, and the Ashland, Oregon Shakespeare Festival.
