66% Petite Sirah, 24% Syrah, 9% Grenache and 1% Viognier.  This wine was created to be elegant and smooth, yet full bodied and age-able.  There should be nothing overpowering or out of balance.  Enjoy this wine now or up to 6 years of cellar aging (or longer).

Production notes

Season: 2012 was a hot and dry year.  The massive heat wave that struck in late July expedited ripening.  Our harvest was a few weeks earlier than normal.  The wines became big and bold and bursting with fruit.

Harvest: There were 4 lots of grapes which were harvested from 9/26 – 10/18 with Brix ranging from 22.5° - 28.7°. 

Vineyards: Rosewynn Vineyard – Petite Sirah

Hidden Oak Vineyard – Petite Sirah

Hearthstone Vineyard – Grenache and Syrah

Vinification: The grapes were cold-soaked for an average of 4 days before fermentation was initiated.  Viognier was added for co-fermentation to some lots.  A variety of yeasts were used (including multiple native yeast fermentations).  The fermentations lasted an average of 10 days.  1 lot was left for extended maceration for 2 weeks post-fermentation.  The wine was then selectively pressed off (higher pressings were separated and/or discarded).

Aging: All wine was aged in barrel for 14 – 15 months. The wine was aged in separate small, individual lots and then blended after 13

months.  Oak was both French and American, with the majority being French.
