WINEMAKING NOTES:

To balance the prominent grip characteristic of Petite Sirah, this particular blend was crafter with a softer, more elegant body.  This wine opens with immediate hints of blueberry and blackberry, followed by accents of Dutch chocolate and a subtle touch of cardamom. The palate is big and weighty with ample mid-palate and soft, velety tannins. 


FERMENTATION/AGING:

Tannins were skillfully prepared, giving utmost importance to retaining fruit aromatics and crafting a perfectly balanced wine. Once dry, the wine is pressed and put through malo-lactic fermentation to soften the acids. An aggressive oak regime is used to balance and add richness to the tannins.


FOOD PAIRING:

Petite Filet with Cabernet Reduction, Slow-Braised Lamb with Sauteed Mushrooms, Beef Chorizo with Cream Sauce
