Tasting Notes

Comprising less than one percent of U.S. wine production, Petite Sirah is gaining a following for its deep, rich flavors and high tannins and acidity. The characteristic aromas of blueberry, chocolate, pepper and spice are evident on the nose, along with roast coffee, cigar and graphite. Full-bodied with chewy tannins right from the start, the mid-palate shows fleshy tannins and acidity that bring out dark fruit like plum and fresh violets. Lengthy tannins provide depth and richness to the finish.

Vineyard Notes

Fruit is from the 42-acre Carpenter Hill Vineyard, family owned and operated and located on a steep, east-facing slope at the base of the Siskiyou Mountains in Phoenix, Oregon. The warm, semi-arid climate of Oregon's Rogue Valley creates bold, big-flavored wines that stand out from the other cool climate reds of the Pacific Northwest.

Winemaker Notes

The fruit was cold soaked for 48 hours with daily pump overs, then fermented in a stainless steel open top tank with twice daily punch downs. Aged 23 months in French oak, 44% new.
