Tasting Notes

A focused and well structured wine, the 2017 Petite Sirah has deep, rich aromas of black cherries, baking spice, and licorice giving way to violets and a rustic touch of earthiness. In the glass, this spicy, blue-black Petite Sirah reveals an expressive range of flavors, from blackberry and forest raspberry to ripe blueberries and notes of gaminess and black pepper.

Vineyard Designation

Summerwind Vineyard

Vineyard Notes

2017 was a tale of two growing seasons. We started the year with a flood that saturated vineyards and led to a late spring, but all worries of a later vintage vanished with the warm summer. 2017 was harvest at a close-to-normal date, with resulting ripe fruit flavors. In the lat 20 years, only 2007 and 2015 had more heat accumulation than 2017. The year will also be remembered for the wine country fires. While devastating to our communities, the wines were not affected since harvest completed before the fires occurred.

Winemaker Notes

The fruit cold-soaked for 24-hours and was inoculated with yeast the next morning. Pumping over the Petite was adjusted in duration and frequency, depending on taste and yeast activity (one to three times per day). The ferment was pressed off between at two brix. Once dry, the wine was racked off lees and inoculated for malolactic fermentation. MLF was done in tank and barrel, and upon completion, racked into barrel for 20 months.
