aromatic notes of sun warmed blackberry, mulberry, bittersweet chocolate, freshly cracked pepper & a dash of smoky vanilla. This wine is a great example that there can be harmony between power & elegance. full bodied and true to the fruit driven character of Petite, though its velvety soft tannins and surprisingly balanced acidity which lift up on the finish leaves the palate unburdened by the chucky coarse mono-dimensional grip that often marks this varietal.

For the Connoisseur- aromatic notes of sun warmed blackberry, mulberry, bittersweet chocolate, freshly cracked pepper & a dash of smoky vanilla.

For the wine Geek- Grown 19 feet below sea level, on limestone soils at the Guard RD. block in the western most planted area of the Lodi appellation. We harvest on October 4th at an average of 24.5 Brix. The fruit was hand sorted at the crusher. To enhance the mid palate and spice, roughly 20% of the clusters were left whole. Fermented in ½ ton macro bins & punched down 4 times a day. Pressed and barreled down into a mix of 20% new & 80% seasoned French oak barrels. Captured into bottle on December 10th 2007 and Released into the wild in May of 2008. Lab notes- pH 3.66 / TA .64 / Alc% 14.2 Case production: 380
