Winemaking Fermented in small, open top tanks, with frequent punch down. Half of the Petite Sirah grapes were fermented with their stalks (as “vendange entière” or “whole bunch” fermentation). Skin contact is limited to the duration of fermentation extracting the purest expression of the carefully chosen fruit. The wine was aged in Burgundy French oak barrels for 18 months. Tasting Notes Black pepper, red fruit, Lavender and Mediterranean herbs. This full-bodied wine has an extraordinary acidity and structure, and a long and sensual oral nish. This wine will age well for a decade and beyond.
