2016 Petite Sirah
Intensely dark amethyst color, firm texture and effusive aromas of concentrated ripe berries give this Petite Sirah a luscious and heady personality. Notes of juicy plum, black tea, dark chocolate and spicy pepper round out the flavors for a prominent finish.

The 2016 Vintage experienced ideal concentration due to lower amounts of spring rainfall, a warmer spring, cooler summer and lighter than normal crop load. The Petite Sirah was harvested with excellent sugar, color and tannin concentration, resulting in a bigger style wine. Beautifully balanced, the structure of the 2016 Petite will allow it to develop over the next decade.
