Tasting Notes

"This concentrated Petite syrah has great balance and lots of subtleties to explore. The color is extremely deep and dark. The Aromas are reminiscent of currants, ripe blackberry and dried blueberries. This dark, dark red is full of velvety tannins and earthy notes that coat the pallet and dance gracefully with the big black fruit and jammy backbone of this huge wine"

Vineyard Notes

The growing season of 2014 was the third in a string of stunning vintages in Lake County. Dry, mild temperatures brought on early budbreak and harvest, while the persistent drought helped produce small berries with concentrated flavors and elegant tannins. The overall length of the growing season was normal, allowing for full ripening.

Winemaker Notes

"Picked during the cool of the night, we hand sorted and destemmed the fruit into 1 ton fermentation bins. With an extended cold soak we extracted concentrated color and strong flavor characteristics. Fermented for 28 days before aging in 100% new American oak for 28 months"
