We first made this wine in 1971 from this rugged hillside vineyard. Petite sirah, typically used as a blending varietal with zinfandel, merits being made on its own in certain special sites such as York Creek. Despite limiting maceration time during fermentation to five days, the 2016 is a wine of deep, dark color and formidable structure. Twelve months aging in American oak helped integrate tannins. This full bodied complex petite sirah will mature over 15 years.
