Tasting Notes

The inky purple color is the first indicator that a big, bold wine awaits. On the nose one detects blackberry pie, currant, cracked peppercorns, espresso and dark chocolate with hints of violet and lavender. Tannins are fleshy and grippy in the mouth. Lingering acidity on the finish balances out the tannins, resulting in a fine expression of Petite Sirah.

Vineyard Notes

Fruit is from the 42-acre Carpenter Hill Vineyard, family owned and operated and located on a steep, east-facing slope at the base of the Siskiyou Mountains in Phoenix, Oregon. The warm, semi-arid climate of Oregon's Rogue Valley creates bold, big-flavored wines that stand out from the other cool climate reds of the Pacific Northwest.

Winemaker Notes

Cold soaked for 48 hours with daily pump overs. Fermented in a stainless steel open top tank with twice daily punch downs. Aged 17 months in new French oak.
