2015 Petite Sirah
Our 2015 Petite is varietally dark, but shows a hint of translucence that is reflected on the palate. Aromas of earthy basalt and blackberry suggest a serious wine redolent of old cellars and treasured, dusty bottles. It tastes like lush black fruits, laced with chai spice, but it has a lively quality and a lightness on the palate and slight spark in the mouthfeel, with nicely integrated overtones of pomegranate. The finish is velvety but vivid and has a refreshing quality, rare for Petite Sirah.
