Petite Sirah 2017
Amazing wine takes time. On the north slope of High Valley, on Franciscan soils, lies a small 2.7 acre block in the middle of Betsy’s Vineyard. These 30+ year old vines produce small clusters of our most mouthwatering Petite Sirah.
Aromas of dried blueberries with under-tones of Dutch chocolate and vanilla, followed by flavors of dense fruit, earthy dried herbs, oats, molasses and warm spices.
An El Niño weather pattern brought a wet winter and spring to the North Coast in 2017. A heat spike in June advanced the white grapes and prompted harvest in late August. Once the white grapes were in, cooler weather set in and gave us a delayed start to the red grape harvest two weeks later. About 95% of the vintage was in when the fires in Sonoma, Napa and Lake Counties began. We were luckily unscathed.
