Winemaking notes

This wine is a blend of 80% Petite Sirah and 20% Tannat. After fermenting on the skins for 6-9 days the must was pressed. The resulting wine finished fermentation in stainless steel tanks, and then was aged in new & used French and American oak barrels.

Tasting notes

Blackberry and boysenberry on the nose, as well as caramel, toffee and chocolate. The wine has a rich, soft cream texture of mocha and ripe black fruit flavours, followed by a lingering, mouthwatering finish. 80% Petite Sirah and 20% Tannat.
