Wine Profile

Tasting Notes The nose starts off with boysenberry with a hint of cola. The palate texture is soft and fruity, with just enough acidity to enhance fruitiness without throwing the tannins off balance to dryness. The berry patch characteristics are most pronounced in the finish in which the last impression is berry fruit esters. That last impression of freshness and floral/berry synergy invites another sip. Enjoy now. – Ashley Heisey
Vineyard Notes The third consecutive cool and late growing season of 2012 was perfect for Petite Sirah. Our dry winter ended with moderate rainfall in March, giving us a long growing season and also led to richer flavor development. We opened the vine canopies to ensure sunlight, warmth and good air circulation around the grape clusters. The night-harvested grapes retained their enticing aromas and naturally pleasing acidity all the way to the bottle.
Food Pairing Notes Perfect with BBQ pulled pork or smoked heritage St. Louis ribs with green apple coleslaw
