Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2013 Petite Sirah shows extraordinary and complex aromatics on the nose. It presents characteristics of strawberry rhubarb pie, burnt brown sugar, beetroot, and dark red cranberries. On the palate, the notes evoke stewed red plums, toasty chestnuts, coffee, and tar. The tannins are rich, firm, and dense, but still pleasant for such a young Petite Sirah.
Vineyard Notes
At 2,000-2,200 feet above sea level, the Volcano Ridge Vineyard is located on the steep slopes of an extinct cinder cone volcano better known as Round Mountain Volcano. The pure volcanic soils, or “tephra”, are extremely well-drained and are ideal for vine stress and restricting crop yields, resulting in concentrated and complex wines with opulent fruit flavors.
Production Notes
Our Volcano Ridge Petite Sirah was processed gently to create a whole berry fermentation. After a 3-5 day cold soak, the grapes underwent a native yeast fermentation, creating more complex aromatics, richer flavors, and enhanced mouthfeel perception. After fermentation, we have an extended maceration on the must that gently extracts more color and produces more flavor for the wine. The Petite Sirah was then sent to 30% new American oak and 70% neutral American oak to undergo a naturally occurring malolactic fermentation in barrel. The wine was stirred monthly on its lees to achieve additional body and texture. After 18 months in barrel, our 2013 Petite Sirah was lightly fined and bottled without filtration.
Winemaker Notes
100% Petite Sirah
Food Pairing Notes
This is a big wine that is complemented by pork spare ribs, barbecue, or a wood oven-fired pizza.
