Our 2017 Petite Sirah is an extremely bright bottling with mouth-watering fruit aromas that jump out of the glass. Blackberry and boysenberry jam are first impressions, enveloped in a deeply intense dark chocolate and fudge character derived from our French oak coopers. The palate is large, but smooth, with silky tannins and an exceptionally long finish.
Casa de Vinas
The Livermore Valley is an East-West oriented valley east of the San Francisco Bay, and west of the Altamont hills that separate the Bay Area from the Central Valley. The coastal fog that regularly move in and out of the valley moderate the warm days of the growing season, and makes it an ideal location for growing wine grapes. It’s defining characteristic is the gravel that occupies most of the soil profiles through-out the valley and make for low vigor vines and highly concentrated wine.
This a single vineyard bottling from Casa de Viñas Vineyard in Livermore. The grapes were destemmed to tank and fermented on the skins for 10 days. It was aged for 18 months in 50% new French Oak and 50% neutral oak.
Enjoy this wine with Chili-glazed pork ribs, a classic meatloaf or venison stew.
