EMP Elder Rock 2013 Petite Sirah
Millions of years ago, alluvial fans and flood plains containing rock and shale fragments were deposited along the Central Coast region of California. These ancient marine layers are evidenced today by the rocky terrain and soils that we call ‘elder loam'. At Elder Rock, we strive to craft wines that display the unique terroir and prehistoric roots of the land, wines that express a strong sense of place.
The small berries of Petite Sirah create a high skinto-juice ratio and some of the highest tannin levels compared to other red varieties. Aromas of concentrated black fruit, plums, and cassis with hints of mocha and spice are followed by a rich and balanced palate. Medium-bodied with dense tannins, the rich mouthfeel leads into a lingering, well-balanced finish.
