Petite Sirah is a powerhouse red grape that makes dark, inky wines that are peppery, have firm tannins and rich, juicy flavors of baked blackberry pie, sugared plums, black cherries, and notes of dark chocolate and seasoned wood. In fact, the deep color of this varietal and the way it stains our tongues when we taste mature grapes is, in part, how we gauge when to harvest the fruit
2012 experienced a long growing season because of chilly spring temperatures and heavy rains that delayed bud break. Crops were reduced significantly on account of the weather, but having less fruit intensified flavor concentration in the grape clusters that remained, and excellent weather in September contributed to more intense aromas and textural dimension. As a result of this vintage’s low yields, our 2012 Petite Sirah is dark and dense, offering a profuse bouquet, rich concentration and sturdy tannins. Experience lush layers of black currants, wild berries, and cherries plus smoky minerals, notes of tobacco and sweet oak.
