Winemaker's Library Selection!
2020 has already begun as an exceptional vintage with the peaceful skies and perfect weather. The clusters are huge and plants are vibrant. The air quality is the best I have noticed in 22 years!
In anticipating 2020 to be an exceptional vintage I wanted to share some past exceptional vintages with you from my Library. There are only a handful of cases of each so please limit your purchase to 3 bottles of any you choose.
2011 Petite Sirah-exceptional because it was a cooler than usual season with an early fall and fresh rainfall from mid-September to mid-October. This season truly shows the purity of the variety. The focus is obvious but subtle black pepper. Tannins are a perfect balance of a "drink-alone" experience or enjoying a great curry dish with Tahini sauce. Every vintage of our Petite Sirah has won Gold or Best of Class! $65/bottle
2009 Syrah-exceptional because it is fully-loaded with all the elements you would expect a world class Syrah to exhibit. This is the boldest vintage and has aged gracefully without giving up any strength on the pallet. Never released to the public! Decant possible sediment and let open while you enjoy a glass of it’s flagship complement Viognier! $65/bottle
MAGNUMS-(a magnum is a large format bottle that equals 2 regular bottles of wine)
Your choice of Syrah, Petite Sirah or Sangiovese! (Specify at checkout)
EXCEPTIONAL because 2012 was a pinnacle vintage and bottle aging in large format bottles brings out the very best of the wine. I bottled 25 cases each of these varietals in Magnums to showcase their aging ability and am ready to release them to you! All Gold Medal winners! $95/bottle
