2013 Petite Sirah, "The Pergola" Magnum 1.5L
We are immensely proud of our 2013 Petite Sirah. This wine manages to be both decadent and versatile, which is no small feat! During our blending trials the descriptors of chocolate, sweet bacon fat, vanilla and spiced stone fruits made numerous appearances. While being delicious is of great importance, it is also imperative that the depth and structure add intrigue to the wine. To rein in the bold tannins inherent to Petite Sirah, we employ a cooler fermentation than normal, which limits extraction. The resulting mid-palate is nothing short of velvety and allows the acidity to keep the wine composed. This is the perfect bottle to serve with your main course and have the last little bit in your glass to carry over to dessert.
