NEW RELEASE! Our 2014 Syrah/Petite Sirah red blend is the product of co-fermenting 50% Syrah with 50% Petite Sirah, both picked on the same day in late September 2014. As you might expect from a wine made from these two varieties this wine is a powerhouse of explosive fruit flavors balanced with matching tannins creating a big, big, bold…. and delicious wine. Blueberries, boysenberries will greet your palate with a full throated mouth feel and a peppery finish that lingers on and on. This wine was aged in neutral barrels here at the winery to give a nice balance of fruit, acid and tannins. Enjoy this wine with a wide variety of foods from bb’q to winter comfort stews. Or just enjoy a glass all by itself!
