Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting Notes Our signature Petit Sirah offers rich approachable full-bodied flavors and supple tannins. The Lodi appellation fruit aged in handcrafted small oak barrels provides backbone and structure to this lovely wine. Enjoy with friends! Winemaker Notes The challenge with Petite Sirah is taming the tannins that naturally exist within the grape itself due to the berry size and high skin to juice ratio. To create a refined and approachable style we start with Lodi as the focus appellation. Older vines and warmer temperatures ensure grape maturity. Fermenting all of the lots in Stainless Steel allows us to capture the bright berry fruit intensity. Aging some of the lots in Stainless allows us to keep that bright fruit and acidity while the lots aged in French and American oak lend undertones of vanilla crème brulee while softening the tannins and enhancing the structure. All factors combined create a balanced style that is un-mistakably Petite Sirah. Varietal Blend: 98% Petite Sirah 2% Other Red Viticultural Areas: Lodi Fermentation: Stainless Steel Aging: 90% French and American Oak barrels Titratable Acid: .58 g/100ml pH: 3.60 Alcohol: 13.5%
