The 2019 Growing Season started with an abundance of rainfall and late soil moisture. The long, warm summer saw very few extreme heat events, with foggy mornings setting the stage for vibrant and expressive wines. The long, relatively mild, finish to the season helped to preserve freshness and finesse in the fruit with abundant hang time teasing out great color, structure and soft tannins. Yields were average to a little below average. All in all, exceptional fruit with bright acidity and ample texture promises an amazing vintage.
Food Pairing Notes
We recommend pairing our Petite Sirah with a blackened salmon, beef bourguignon or grilled pork tenderloin.
This Petite Sirah displays an exceptional and unique character. The layered complexity, along with vibrant aromas and flavors, make Petite Sirah a great asset in blending. For this wine, we wanted to showcase the varietal on its own. We bottle this wonderfully rich wine exclusively for our Wine Club members and winery guests.
