The grapes for this Petite Sirah come from the highest point of Tip Top Vineyard, just touching 2000 feet in elevation. This west facing block, while one of the warmer spots on the property, is constantly buffeted by strong mountain winds pulled inland from the coast. This mix of sun and wind provides ideal growing conditions for our Petite Sirah. A deeply pigmented wine, it is layered with aromas of blackberry galette, dried clover, and sage. Soft, velvety tannins accompany refreshing acidity.

Wine & Spirits - 94 "Like the best petites, this takes a few days to show itself, shy but for the tannins you can readily sense in its aromatic heft. It smells of chapparal and petrol, fig and earth. After three days of air, a dark-plum compote scent emerges, its sunny warmth becoming exotic and ferrous, with cardamom-scented tannins and a sensual, firm texture. It will reward cellaring." —Patrick J. Comiskey
