Eos Petite Sirah 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Aromas of smoky oak with hints of molasses and blueberry waft from the glass with layers of blackberry and chocolate. The richness of the dark berries and baker’s chocolate explode into the mouth while the velvety dark textures of the molasses glide over the palate. An extended finish of spice lingers with hints of smoke.

Originally named for the Goddess of the Dawn in ancient Greek mythology, Eos Estate Winery uses state-of-the-art, eco-friendly technology to harness the sun’s energy to craft premium wines. Visits to the spacious, Italianate hospitality center, perched on a hilltop amid rose gardens in the heart of Paso Robles wine country, blend wine tasting with solar-powered farming and winemaking operations. In 2008, Eos launched a $5 million project to install a cutting-edge solar system to power the winery and tasting room operations. More than two acres of ground-mounted tracking solar arrays now supply all electrical power for the winery and tasting room, and additional roof-mounted solar arrays provide all water-heating needs. Eos is the largest winery on California's Central Coast to run completely on alternative energy. Guided tours of the solar power system are available to visitors upon request. Other investments have resulted in extensive winery improvements, including a super-high-tech wine lab, and the replanting of several vineyard blocks. We also recruited a new Director of Winemaking, Nathan Carlson, lured by our commitment to sustainable agriculture and the use of solar energy to provide energy needs. A native of rural Minnesota and a key member of winemaking teams in Central California and Oregon's Dundee Hills, Carlson has more than a decade of winemaking experience, and is known as an expert in regional climate and weather patterns. A cypress-lined drive leads up to the hospitality center, where visitors can taste their way through a complimentary flight of wines. Eos encourages guests to sit outdoors amid the lush gardens, shaded by palm, olive, and oak trees, and enjoy the scenic views of the sun-splashed vineyards and rolling hills of this eco-friendly estate. Tastings: Reserve tasting $10.00, Estate tasting $5.00 The Wines: Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Late Harvest Moscato, Malbec, Merlot, Muscat Canelli, Petite Sirah, Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc, Zinfandel, Zinfandel Port Specialty: Estate-grown, block-designate Petite Sirah Of Special Note: Picnic area. Limited reserve, special blends, and Cupa Grandis wines are available only in the tasting room Read less

I just purchased the EOS 2004 *Brothers Ranch Vineyard" Petite Sirah - but they also make a "Cupa Grandis" (and possibly a Reserve). It was the Cupa Grandis that won awards - I can't find any info for awards earned by the Brothers Ranch bottling: from www.esovintage.com: Cupa Grandis 2004 Petite Sirah GOLD MEDAL 2008 American Wine Society Competition RECOMMENDED "OUTRAGEOUSLY GOOD" The Wine Buzz, Sept/Oct 2008 2003 Vintage Highlights BEST PETITE SIRAH Wine & Spirits 21st Annual Buying Guide, Winter 2007 GOLD MEDAL, 94 POINTS 2007 California State Fair Wine Competition 93 POINTS Wine & Spirits, 8/07 91 POINTS The Wine Report, 9-10/07 RECOMMENDED The Wine Investor Buyer's Guide, 3/07
