2020 Estate Petite Sirah Rosé
Petite Sirah grapes, estate-grown on a south-west facing hillside at 2600ft elevation were used for our newest release of Rose. Picked at low sugar and high acidity, this wine was whole cluster pressed and fermented in neutral French oak with native yeast. While known for its rugged tannins and bold, spicy fruit, Petite Sirah when picked early and pressed without crushing, produces a distinctive and delicious rose wine, crisp in acidity and long on flavor.
Abundantly fruity and redolent of freshly crushed grapes, this youthful and vibrant wine shows aromas of strawberry and stone fruit, with subtle minerality and creaminess. The mouthfeel is crisp and structured, with good mid-palate weight and a long finish.
