Tasting notes

Our Dry Creek Valley Petite Sirah is a  big dense,  full-flavored rendition of one of Sonoma County’s most scarce and special red wine grapes. Deep blue with a dark ink edge, full-flavored with lush velvety texture on the palate with bright blackberry to blueberry flavors. This wine is weighty and full of fresh dark berries with rich, dark accents of cocoa nib. Intriguing and delicious. Aromas of dark chocolate, vanilla, black cherry, sweet oak jump from the glass.

Winemaker notes

Harvested on September 25, 2013, at 25.5 degrees brix. The fruit was gently crushed and destemmed, and fermented 10 days to dryness in small one ton fermenters. Following pressing, this wine was clarified naturally by settling and then moved to small oak cooperage where it aged for 15 months. We used a blend of new and one-year-old French Oak barrels to both enhance and complement the wonderful berry aromas.
