3L 2006 Old Vine Petite Sirah
Ripe fruit flavors veer toward the jammy, spicy side, with wonderful red fruit, cherry, raspberry and currant flavors. The intensity and persistence of the flavors are supported by the firmly tannic structure. Drink now through 2017.
A pre-fermentation cold soak with traditional pump-over cap management preserved the unique fruit qualities of this wine. After malolactic occurred in neutral wood, an addition of 20% new American oak was used to enhance the spice flavor components and to frame the fruit with added structure in the mid-palate. During 14 months of aging, this wine was racked once and only lightly filtered before bottling.
The Hwy 88 Ranch on the southeast side of Lodi is the source of grapes for our Old Vine Petite Sirah. The vineyard consists of multiple soil types ranging from sandy loam to clay. Comprised mostly of Hamford sandy loam and Greenfield sandy loam, the vineyards soil profile changes radically from north to south. Only about 25% of the south side is San Joaquin loam ending in a small corner of Capay clay. Full of eutypa dieback (dead arm disease) and weeds, this is the strangest looking vineyard we produce wine from. However with vine over 50 years old, this vineyard produces some of the highest quality Petite Sirah in California, proving the old adage you can never judge a book by its cover.
