Grown in various warm weather regions throughout California, including Lodi, Paso Robles, and Dry Creek Valley, Petite Syrah is one of the most intense red varietals in terms of color and tannin, which is why it's frequently used as a blending grape to add pigment or phenols. The varietal also produces small berries in tight clusters; a factor that contributes to its concentration. To avoid extracting too much tannin from our fruit, we press the grapes very gently in order to achieve a more delicate style of wine that doesn't need years in the cellar.

After a frigid spring, moderate temperatures persisted throughout the 2011 growing season, delaying harvest until very late in the fall. This extra time on the vines allowed the fruit to develop profuse aromatics and deeper flavor concentration because the maturation process was slow, making this year's Petite Syrah wonderfully fragrant and very layered in flavor. The palate is lush with plenty of rich fruit and exotic spices.
