Winemaker Notes

The Petite Sirah was destemmed and sent to tank for 10 days on its skins. Once dry, the wine was pressed off, settled and sent to barrel. The Syrah received a similar fermentation treatment but also received a 5 day cold soak prior to fermentation.

Ratings

Bold but polished, this wine has a big structure of tannins and body filled with nicely ripe but not jammy fruit flavors and accented by cocoa and mint. It is concentrated, layered and deep. Best after 2023. —JIM GORDON, Wine Enthusiast 10/1/2020
