Gustafson Family Vineyards Petite Sirah Dry Creek Valley 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Harvested early and at an almost perfect 4 tons per acre yield, this fruit was majestic when it came into the winery. To aid in proper tannin extraction and flavor development this wine was fermented in an open top tank with manual punch downs. Aged for 18 months to integrate the full fruit flavors with toasted oak, the wine shows elegant structure and balance.

Tasting Notes:

The nose is greeted with aromas of mint and chocolate highlighted with subtle oak and leather. The pallet opens with dark fruit and moves into a lush blueberry intensity that balances perfectly with the acidity displayed across the mid-pallet. The finish is smooth and long with excellent tannic structure, marking this wine as a classic Petite Sirah.
