Winemaker's Notes:

This late bottled vintage "port" was a dream to make. The grapes were crushed and chilled down to 45°F and allowed to sit on the skins for six days, extracting flavors and color. We then added yeast and slowly allowed the fermentation to begin with close monitoring, in order to press off the skins and add our brandy at optimal sugar to stop the fermentation. The blend was then transferred to older barrels and allowed to age for 2 1/2 years before bottling. The grapes are grown on extraordinary mountain vineyards in Mendocino County. The Petite Sirah comes from the Talmage Bench area just west of Ukiah on the eastern side of the valley. It is grown at an elevation of approximately 1,400 feet.. The grapes get very ripe, and give spicy berry fruit with dark, black inky color. The Zinfandel comes from the Mendocino Ridge Appellation and is grown at an extreme elevation of 2,900 feet. These are very renowned grapes and grow right on the edge of what is deemed common for viticulture, resulting in very concentrated cranberry-raspberry flavors and aromas. Winemaker's Notes: A blend of Petite Sirah, Zinfandel and Syrah with flavors of blackberry, cassis and blueberries complemented with notes of dark milk chocolate, this is sweet and viscous in the mouth, blanketing the palate with a fine, velvety tannin. 2007 Riverside International Wine Competition 2004 Portentous Mendocino - Medal Winner Limited release of 200 cases
