Winemaker Notes

Without Petite Sirah the California wine industry would look vastly different. Since its arrival from France in the late 1800s, Peitie Sirah has provided the color, flavor and backbone to many of the state’s most popular reds. Stokes’ Ghost explores the more complex aspects of this wonderfully powerful grape. Inky black in color, it delivers haunting aromatics, commanding flavors and red velvet tannins.

Critical Acclaim

D 93
Decanter

A brooding, dense wine affording a rewarding mouthful of dark and blue berries with dried fruit and ripe tannins.

Stokes' Ghost Wines, California
Since its founding in 1972 by Al Scheid, Scheid Family Wines has been committed to growing the highest quality grapes from the Monterey AVA. With 11 estate vineyards and 4,000 acres of vines covering a 70-mile span, the array of soils and microclimates give Scheid Family Wines an incredible selection of wines to work with from vintage to vintage. As a family-owned winery, Scheid Family Wines remains committed to sustainability throughout operations, including 100% sustainable vineyards officially certified by the California Sustainable Winegrowing Alliance. In the winery, the mantra is gentle handling and minimal intervention, allowing the distinctive terroir and varietal integrity to shine.

Though distinctive and unique, District 7, Metz Road, Stokes’ Ghost and VDR each stay true to the core value of Scheid Family Wines that great wines are made in the vineyard.

Central Coast, California

A geographic and climatic paradise for grape vines, Monterey is a part of the greater Central Coast AVA and contains within it five smaller sub-appellations, including Arroyo Seco, San Lucas, San Bernabe, Hames Valley and the famous Santa Lucia Highlands. The climate is relatively warm but tempered by cool, coastal winds, allowing the regions in Monterey County an exceptionally long growing season. Bud break often happens two weeks sooner and harvest tends to be two weeks later compared to other surrounding regions.

Monterey’s coastal side, where the cooling ocean fog allows grapes to develop a perfect sugar-acid balance, excels in the production of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Riesling. Warmer, inland subzones are home to fleshy, concentrated and full-bodied reds like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Zinfandel.

Chardonnay, covering about 40% of vineyard acreage, is the most widely planted grape in all of Monterey County.

With its deep color, firm tannins and bold flavors, there is nothing petite about Petite Sirah. The variety, originally known as Durif in the Rhône, took on its more popular moniker after being imported to California in the early 1880s. Quintessentially recognized today as a grape of the Golden State, Petite Sirah works well blended with Zinfandel and finds success as a single varietal wine in the state’s warmer districts. Somm Secret—Petite Sirah is not a smaller version of Syrah but it is an offspring of Syrah and the now nearly extinct French Alpine variety called Peloursin.
