2018 Petite Sirah
To make this wine we sourced sustainably farmed Petite Sirah from Texas Road Vineyard in the San Marcos District of Paso Robles. Very low yields in the vineyard create wonderful concentration and color. The grapes were harvested on October 2nd, 2018 at an average 24.6 brix with a pH of 3.84. This wine was fermented in small open-top tanks and punched down by hand three times daily during its initial fermentation. It was then barrel-aged for eighteen months, during which it underwent malolactic fermentation, in 25% new French & American oak barrels.
