Nose

Exhibits aromas of dark fruits, huckleberry and brambles.

Palate

Upon the palate this big, chewy wine has flavors of blackberry and cardamom spice with a sweetness to the fruit that carries it through from start to finish. Well-balanced and imposing, this wine is ready to drink but will also age beautifully

Growing Conditions

The 2013 vintage in Napa Valley was one of the earliest harvested vintages in years. A warm spring led to early bud break and created the perfect environment for flowering and fruit set. With warm days and cool nights, our team was able to maintain ideal acid levels with optimum, bright fruit flavors. Our Small Lot Collection Peitite Sirah grapes come from rocky-river soil in the Rutherford Appellation with Oak Knoll Cabernet Sauvignon added to enhance the wine’s textural balance.

Winemaking

Fermentation took place for 12-16 total days on the skins.

Aging

This Petite Sirah is 100% barrel-aged for 16 months in Demptos, Nadalie, and Saury French Oak barrels.

Appearance

A deep, dark purple in the glass.

Food Pairing

The perfect complement to a delicious marbled steak.
