Winemakers notes ~ Our reserve program is where our winemaker gets to shine! These wines are hand-crafted. Greg might do additional cluster sorting prior to crush or leaving the juice on the lees longer to achieve a more intense and flavorful wine. Then the wines are aged longer, in the case of the Petite Sirah he ages them in French oak for 36 months. Once the wine is bottled it is laid down to rest for an additional 12 months prior to releasing it to the public.

Tasting notes ~ Our Reserve Petite Sirah is built to last. This wine has a velvety mouth feel and tastes of juicy raspberry and rounded flavors of cherry with a slight hint of licorice. Best served at room temperature. We recommend serving our Petite Sirah with duck and roasted game, as well as, dark chocolate. Herbs, such as anise, clove and thyme compliment this wine.
