Writer's Block Petite Sirah 2016
Buy a Bottle (750ml)
The fruit for the Petite Sirah comes from Clay Shannon’s vineyards in High Valley. This high elevation, cooler climate vineyard produces a little leaner Petite Sirah compared with lower elevation sites.
Not much has to be done to the Petite Sirah grape for it to be bright with fruit and deep with color. During the fermentation we used the rack and return process to increase mouthfeel and tannin balance followed by aging in French and Hungarian Oak for 8 months.
The intense flavor of Petite Sirah usually calls for intense foods to match the flavors. However, since this wine is slightly lighter than typical Petite Sirahs, it will pair well with anything from fennel sausage pasta to Osso Buco. Enjoy!
