Grape VarietyPetite Sirah
StyleFull & Opulent
Though limited, welcome rain in February and March allowed the petite sirah to endure a third year of drought. Nature thinned the crop in early June, when several days above 100˚ caused sunburn in the clusters. After fermenting separately, six of the seven parcels were selected for their depth of flavor, quality of tannins, and sumptuous texture. One of the most elegant petite sirahs Ridge have produced, it will evolve over the next ten years.
Opaque purple in color. Complex nose of blackberry, plum, tarragon, mint, and cocoa. Beautifully well-balanced. Full-bodied with chalky tannins. Rich and concentrated plum and mint on the finish.
