Vinum Cellars Petite Sirah Clarksburg Pets Wilson Vineyards 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Deep, inky pomegranate purple color that does leave stains. This super concentrated petite sirah features varietal wet clay notes which synthesize into a savory floral lavender scent over light clove spices. The palate is very supple with sappy French Oak flavors and generous concentration over a complex matrix of massive yet resolved tannins. The finish is silky textured with subtle vanilla, cola and over-ripe huckleberry juiciness.

Our basic winemaking philosophy is to work with great grape growers to develop the best fruit in the vineyard. We pick the grapes at optimal ripeness and gently process the fruit.

Our basic winemaking philosophy is to work with great grape growers to develop the best fruit in the vineyard. We pick the grapes at optimal ripeness and gently process the fruit. We are very experimental with yeast strains and use different cultures for each variety. Our whites are barrel fermented slowly and aged Sur Lies in small French Oak barrels. With our reds, skin contact is optimized by the use of small open top fermentors, hand punch downs and extended maceration before pressing. Our belief in the use of older French Oak barrels allows the varietal fruit of our wines to be expressed. We are committed to experimenting and learning new winemaking methods while preserving an old world approach. Read less

Slight stem and fruit aroma, peppery and Jammy, dry. Not strong enough flavor/fullness to stand up to a rich steak. Ok for drinking alone - but I'd rather have something richer.

A tame yet rich and polished young Petite, with attractive floral notes and plum and black cherry fruit. Approachable now. Drink now through 2009.

A delicious wine that delivers a ripe concentrated core of pomegranate, blueberry and cola flavors. Fresh sage and mocha notes from toasty oak fold into firm, gripping tannins on the cedary finish. Drink now through 2008.
