2016 ESTATE PETITE SIRAH – Carhartt Vineyard – 13.9% abv – 248 cases
Composition: 100% Petite Sirah
Nose (aromas): fresh boysenberry, mocha, coffee bean, tobacco
Flavor (palate): black raspberry, herbal underbrush, espresso, wraps around medium tannin
Winemaker’s Notes: Although Petite Sirah often packs a serious punch, this wine’s fresh acidity gives it an elegance and balance helping it pair with many different dishes. We love P.S. with leg of lamb with a rosemary crust, classic cassoulet, or even New Orleans gumbo. The more flavors, the better!
Ageing Potential: Now – 2030
Additional Notes: This wine was aged in barrel 18 months, and now has been in bottle for about 6 months. For us historically, Petite Sirah has needed that time in bottle to show the rich, intricate layers that make up this wine. Save for an additional six months and watch it truly unfold! Also, it loves to be decanted for 30 minutes plus before drinking!
