Almost opaque in color, the 2006 Petite Sirah exhibits a broad, rich nose of blueberries, sweet toasty oak, and mineral notes. It is abundantly lush, mouth-filling, and weighty on the palate. Typical of the vintage, it exhibits broad, fruit-forward flavors with pleasing fruit tannins.

The deep color of our 2008 Petite Sirah displays the degree of concentration in this wine; it is dense and lush while retaining great balance. The aromas of dark fruit are complimented by hints of cocoa, charcoal, dried herbs, and minerals.

The nose is dark and deep with black and blue berries, black cherries, dark chocolate, minerals, earth, and mild wood and cellar notes. The mouth feel is dense. There are layers of blackberries and blueberries, and then brighter tones of concentrated cherry with a little spice. The mid-palate and finish are very full, rich, and round yet the finish is so balanced with firm tannins and acidity that the wine manages to stay light on its feet.


Winemaker's Notes:

The deep color of our Petite Sirah displays the degree of concentration in this wine; it is dense and lush while retaining great balance. The aromas of dark fruit are complimented by hints of cocoa, charcoal, dried herbs, and minerals. The round mouth shows blueberry and currant flavors. The finish has notes of earth and spiced chocolate along with rich layered tannins and firm acidity. As usual, our Petite Sirah is so approachable that it is hard to set aside, but for those who can wait, it should develop for at least 15 years.
