2014 Petite Sirah Port - Artist Series

The Wine
We made a VERY limited run of this Petite Sirah dessert wine. Only 47 cases were produced. Blueberries and blackberries coat your mouth with generous warm spice. Its like drinking blueberry pie.

The Vineyard
100% Petite Sirah – Inland Desert – Yakima Valley

The Winemaking
Petite Sirah was destemmed only and fermented whole berry. We tasted the wine daily and when we felt it was at the sweetness level we wanted it was fortified with a neutral grape spirit and then aged in neutral French oak for 1 year. This is our take on what a ruby Port would taste like made from Petite Sirah.
