With the grapes growing at 1000' elevation above the frost line, the location lends itself to producing high quality Petite Sirah grapes. This is a classy version of Petite Sirah with smooth, dense blackberry and cherry flavors. The incredible color and firm tannins confirm it is a petite Sirah. With its famous heartiness, this is the ultimate fancy burger or gourmet thin crust pizza wine! Boysenberry jammy, inky and dense. Flavors of licorice and chocolate, savory herbs, garrigue, tobacco and tar. Big with well integrated tannins.
