2021 Petite Sirah
Sept. 1 - Oct. 15th 2021
French and American Oak for 6 months
First Bottling September 2022
The majority of our 2021 Petite Sirah came from Lodi and the remainder came from sustainable vineyards within the Northern Interior Valley.
The grapes for our 2021 Petite Sirah were harvested between September 1st and October 15th with an average Brix of 26. After 6-9 days of fermentation on the skins, the must was pressed and the resulting wine finished fermentation in stainless steel tanks. The wine was then aged on new and used French Oak for 6 months. Our 2021 Petite Sirah is a blend of 76% Petite Sirah with 17% Tannat and 7% Teroldego for robust body and deep hue.
Our 2021 Petite Sirah is full-bodied with a rich purple color. A delicious wine from front to back, leading with aromas and flavors of chocolate, caramel, toffee, and rich black fruit. The mid-palate is driven by mocha notes that carry through to the long, luxurious finish.
