Winemaking Notes: The grapes are handpicked, arrive at the winery and undergo a process of destemming, fermentation and pressing before being sent to mature for 12 months in French oak barrels, approximately half of which are new. The wine is then bottled without any of the clarification processes and after coarse filtration alone, to preserve the gamut of flavors. Tasting Notes: A juicy, strong-tasting rich wine, with a purple, deep bluish color. The wine excels in flavors and aromas, displaying a range of berries and chocolate, spices and walnuts. Vineyards: Jezreel Valley. A mature vineyard. The roots of the Petite Sirah twisted and turned deep into the heavy valley soil and the vine trunks branched out and thickened over the years, a process that contributed to the richness and depth of flavors in this wine.
