Deep and saturated with a core of blueberries, black plum, black cherry, lavender and pepper spice, this wine displays an extraordinary elegance and finesse for which our Petite Sirahs are known. The generous black plum and black cherry flavors are prominent on the palate, yet backed up with delicate cinnamon, clove and cedar spice notes from the oak ageing. There is also a freshness and vibrancy that makes it very inviting with restrained tannins and a generous lengthy finish, encouraging you to enjoy it now, but has the depth and complexity to age for many years to come.

With small amounts of Syrah, Grenache and other mixed Rhône varieties, this is a soft, integrated and approachable red made in a graceful and balanced style. Savory in black plum, leather, dried herb and cocoa powder, it finds its way to a peppery finish.

The 2017 Petite Sirah is composed of 85% Petite Sirah, 6% Syrah, 6% Grenache and 3% mixed Rhone varieties. It was aged 14 months in American oak, 25% new. Deep garnet-purple colored, it bursts from the glass with exuberant scents of prunes, baked black cherries and mulberries with hints of candied violets, unsmoked cigars and new leather plus a hint of spice cake. The medium-bodied palate has a firm level of chewy tannins with plenty of freshness to support the bombastic black fruit preserves, finishing long and earthy. 31,647 cases were made.
