T-Vine Napa Valley Petite Sirah Frediani Vineyard 2009
Once again the old Petite Sirah from the Frediani Vineyard delivers the goods. Every flavor possible in a Petite showed up to the party--blackberries, currants a black pepper. Intensity is easy when the grapes come from this trusted source. The winemaker magic is keeping the balance in check and creating elegance out of intensity. A subtle 10 months in a mixture of new, and once used French and American oak, allowed the flavors to meld and added a rich smoky finish. 420 cases produced. Alcohol 14.8%.
We are a very small winery located off the beaten path in Calistoga, behind the owner - winemaker's home. There are just 3 people that work at T-Vine. We market, sell and deliver all of our own wine in California.
