2014 Petite Sirah


ABV: 14.4%
Nose (aromas): black tea, clove, potpourri, wild blackberry
Flavor (palette): black raspberry, white pepper, chai tea, structured tannin
Winemaker’s Notes: Because of the intensity in mouthfeel of this variety, we love to pair it with like-minded foods. One of our favorites is oven-roasted leg of lamb with a rosemary crust and caramelized onions. Think foods with flavor and/or structure to match this elegant wine.
Ageing Potential: Now-2030
Additional Info: This wine was aged in barrel for two years, and now has been in bottle for just over a year. For us historically, Petite Sirah has needed that time in bottle to show the rich, intricate layers that make up this wine. In addition, it loves to be decanted for 30 minutes plus before drinking!
