Tasting Notes: Another stunning vintage from this little vineyard. The wine is inky dark, almost opaque with a deep, purple hue. On the nose it opens with intense blueberry and blackberry aromas with a toasty caramel and cinnamon undertone. Further aeration reveals deeper, complex layers of ripe plums, white pepper followed by licorice, cedar and a touch of mint. On the mouth this wine is extracted and heavy but well balanced-all the way to a big, hedonistic, juicy, mouth lling nish. Longevity is to be expected from this variety for next 8-12 years.

Vintage Notes: LAST TIME I MADE WINE FROM THIS DRY FARMED VINEYARD WAS BACK IN 2004. Nine years later, the vines are older and producing even better fruit. The word "vineyard" is a bit of an overstatement for this single acre of vines grown on a steep cliff above the oor of Dry Creek Valley. The hard, red soil, lack of irrigation, and hot summer days provide a bit of a challenge for the vines, but their struggle results in super-concentrated fruit, and only 2 to 2.5 tons of grapes per acre. The bud wood for the vines was taken from century-old vines grown on the Trentadue Estate property in Geyserville. All vines are head-pruned in the old traditional way, which I believe is best for Petite Sirah.
