The bouquet offers a variety of aromatics including a sweetness of strawberry, hints of honeycomb and citrus. Shows flavors of nectarine, mandarin and some mineral nuances. Delicate enough for the picnic blanket, complex enough for the table cloth.
Vineyard & Harvest: Blend of Petite Sirah from sunny spots around the SF Bay, ripened to 23 brix for greater phenolic complexity.
Fermentation & Ageing: Direct press, low-and-slow fermentation to preserve floral aromas and bright acidity, 5 months in neutral French oak.
