Petite Syrah Grapes

Block 2A was planted in 2013 with Clone 3 Durif.

Petite Syrah Flavor Profile

Petite Syrah has long been an important blending grape, prized primarily for its deep color and fairly intense tannin. We find our grapes with dark, earthy aromatics of leather and wild mushrooms. The palette exhibits complex layers of cassis, plum and blueberries. The finish is long and lingering with delightfully approachable tannins.

This wine will age wonderfully for years to come.
