2009 PETITE SIRAH

SUISUN VALLEY

WINEMAKER'S NOTES:
Blackberry and plum flavors highlight this wine, which combines bright fruit with balanced acidity and integrated tannins. It combines the deep color and robust qualities of Petite Sirah with a supple texture, to make a versatile and inviting wine.

APPELLATION:
Suisun Valley

VINEYARDS:
The grapes were mainly from a vineyard in the northern part of the valley, in a flat bench area along Mankas Corner Road.

VINTAGE:
The mid-October harvest reflected a long, benign growing season. The long hang time and moderate yields contributed to the wine's complexity and structure, while maintaining the intensity of the fruit.
