WINEMAKING NOTES: 

Lusciousness is the name of the game for this wine and it delivers in spades.
Bright aromas of raspberry jam and black cherry are the focal point of the
flavors, but it carries with it lots of baking spice, vanilla and a hint of cocoa.
The wine is positively unctuous on the palate with a texture like molten
chocolate and a long, lingering finish.


FERMENTATION / AGING:

We knew from the get go that we wouldn’t have any trouble extracting tannin
with these lots. We fermented relatively cool to soften extraction and retain
some of the bright aromatics then inoculated for ma lo-lactic fermentation
shortly after pressing to give the wine a suave, soft mouth-feel. Finally, when
the wine was stable, we matched our Petite Sirah lots to specific oak programs
to give the wine added richness and accentuate the bright punch of fruit we
had gotten out of it.

FOOD PAIRING:

Texas-style Beef Brisket, Pulled-Pork Sliders with Garlic Aioli, Grilled Ribeye
with soy marinade, Wood-fired oven pizza with prosciutto and arugula.
