PETITE SIRAH IS PERHAPS THE BEST GROWING RED GRAPE IN CLARKSBURG AND THIS LIMITED PRODUCTION WINE WAS CRAFTED TO SHOWCASE THE UNIQUENESS OF THE REGION.  THIS DECADENT WINE IS INKY PLUM PURPLE IN COLOR WITH DRAMATIC DARK FRUIT NOTES AND A FULL BODIED PALATE THAT IS STUDDED WITH NOTES OF CASSIS, RICH BERRY PIE, AND EARTHY MINERALITY.  THE FINISH IS LUSH, LONG, AND COMPLEX WITH STURDY TANNINS AND LINGERING OAK CHARACTER.

:HOW IT WAS MADE: 

THERE WERE ONLY 8 BARRELS OF THIS SMALL LOT PETITE SIRAH PRODUCED.  THE GRAPES WERE HAND HARVESTED, DESTEMMED, AND COLD SOAKED PRIOR TO FERMENTIATION.  FOLLOWING THE COLD SOAK, YEAST WAS ADDED AND A COLD, SLOW PRIMARY FERMENTATION ENSUED FOR 2 WEEKS.  THE WINE THEN COMPLETED 100 PERCENT MALOLACTIC FERMENTATION AND WAS AGED FOR 4 YEARS (52 MONTHS) IN SEGUIN MOREAU AMERICAN/FRENCH OAK HYBRID BARRELS.
