2020 Petite Sirah
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 2020 Petite Sirah is ripe, full-bodied and opaque in color, as it should be. The nose is bold with aromas of blackberry, fig, elderberry and ripe plum, and notes of cigar box and mocha. The palate is full-bodied with balanced acidity and structured tannins, integrated bright black fruit, and a lengthy finish with subtle oak notes.
