2018 La Storia Petite Sirah

Tasting Notes

The 2018 La Storia Petite Sirah was made by blending most of our best blocks of Petite Syrah including some Zin and Syrah. Petite Sirah grapes are very sensitive to wet weather conditions but luckily all blocks were ripe and ready for harvesting before the rain in mid-October. The 2018 Petite Sirah berries were very small and slightly dehydrated resulting in an impressive wine with very dark, opaque color, beautiful nose of concentrated blue berries and blackberries that leads to a full body mouth feel with engagingly soft tannins. After short aeration the nose opens up with the addition of cocoa, slight earthiness followed by brown sugar and a touch of vanilla-contribution of the new oak barrels. Overall the aromas are of fresh dark fruit and very attractive. Longevity, if stored properly, is one of the virtues of this variety and it will give you the most enjoyment in 5-8 years. Cheers!
