The 2016 Petite Sirah is from a five acre block takes its name from solidified magma, high in magnesium content, fractured to form the devigorating soils found here.

“Very rich and ripe black-fruit flavors are generously layered between vanilla, chocolate and cedar in this well-oaked, well-rounded and full-bodied wine. It is mouthfilling, broad and moderately tannic, bringing oodles of flavor to the palate. Best through 2028.”Wine Enthusiast – 92 points

Wine Profile

Tasting Notes
This 2016 Petite Sirah predominates with its usual notes of blackberry, and dark cherry, enriched by spicy notes of clove, white pepper and vanilla-caramel on the nose. The palate bursts with dark berry fruits enhanced by rich, full tannins with subtle undertones of leather and a crisp acidity. The finish is long and polished with sweet tobacco and vanilla oak which linger longer than the bottle will seem to last!
Vineyard Notes
This five acre block takes its name from solidified magma, high in magnesium content, fractured to form the devigorating soils found here. Long a source of remarkable Petite Sirah, this moderately dense planting creates small vines, clusters and berries that are deeply hued and offer lovely blackberry flavors, unusually polished tannins and exquisite balance.
