Produced from a stellar block of old, head trained vines; this Petite Sirah is true beauty and elegance. The purity of fruit shines through in the nose with notes of black fruits and bramble berries complemented by aromas of violet and graphite. The entry is silky and full with bright flavors of ripe purple fruits, perfumed flowers, and baking spices. The mid palate is broad and rich with concentration that is dense and opulent. A gentle use of French oak rounds out the tannins for a seamless, seductive and lingering finish.
