Our 2012 Petite Sirah Port was made from our block 400, which is one of the oldest “new” blocks planted back in 1996. The 400 block is on very dry gravely soil and the grapes tend to be stressed and ripen at lower sugar. The sugar at harvest was modest 24.5 Brix, so we needed about 15% brandy to make it into delicious port-styled wine. After pressing, the wine was aged in small neutral oak barrels for 22 months. The nose is of sweet blueberries, plums, and blackberry syrup. The mouth feel is sweet but with perceptible tannins. The relatively high acid keeps the sugar in balance and will ensure the longevity of this wine. Enjoy it on its own or with your favorite desserts and cheeses.
