Wine Description

"Our 2008 vintage Petite Sirah is an inky, dark, fruit-forward wine with aromas of Baked cherry pie, ripe plum, marzipan, anise and allspice; on the palate, there’s a wonderful balance of integrated, firm tannins and crisp acidity with a soft, spicy and lingering finish. The blend is 89% Petite Sirah, 8% Zinfandel, 2% Mourvedre and 1% Grenache. Total cases produced: 5,200." -Winery
