2019 Petite Sirah
End of Vintage
There is nothing petite about Petite Sirah. Rather it earned its name from the small size of the berries, which creates a high skin-to-pulp ratio that gives this wine its dark, inky pigmentation and high tannin levels. This workhorse variety produces some of the most powerful reds on earth and can dance along the edge of muscular versus elegant in a way like no other varietal. The trick when making P.S. is to highlight the fruit and tame the tannins. Our 2019 is ultra-ripe, full-bodied and opaque in color, as it should be. The nose is ripe and bold with aromas of blackberry, plum and black cherry, and hints of baking spice and floral notes. The palate is full-bodied with structured tannins, integrated juicy black fruit and a lingering sweet oak finish.
