2014 Petite Sirah | Estate | Saint Helena | Napa Valley

From our small estate planting of handsomely old vines, Petite Sirah ripens early on our Cortina well-drained soils.  Petite is a misnomer for these muscular and confounding wines.  Tannins are thick yet svelte with loads of aging potential.  Desert sage, black licorice, peat, and plum skin fill the glass.  Unique in Napa Valley, Petite Sirah represents about 2% of total acreage.  We relish the opportunity to farm and lavish attention on these amazing vines.  66 cases 750 ML + magnums bottled unfined and unfiltered.
