Rich plum, fig, and dark chocolate on the nose. Deep opaque purple in color. Full-bodied on the palate with well-coated tannins, ripe bramble fruit, and hints of baking spices and fresh tarragon. Long mineral finish with well-balanced acidity. MB (6/22)
Petite sirah is a close relative to syrah. Like syrah, it is a dark colored grape that yields wines with floral aromas, deep color and full, rich tannins. To moderate tannins, we fermented the grapes destemmed, as whole berries. Aging in twenty-five percent new oak over sixteen months has softened the wine. Built to age, it will be enjoyable for the next twelve to fifteen years. JO (3/21)
