Petite Sirah

2001 Petite Sirah
Amador County

This vintage was nothing short of a swan song. The winter was drier than usual, and most vines ran out of water before what we in Amador County call ripeness. Yet, our Petite Sirah went nuts; it got way ripe. Dad had never let the Petite Sirah get that ripe before, and since he knew it was the last crop, we let it go. What the heck! We fermented in our half ton bins, hand punched four times per day, and pressed after seven days. We hand filled three barrels straight from the press and rolled them full into the barrel room. We racked twice, once on the early side to get the truly heavy lies out early. After a year in the barrel, we bottled. The Last Sirah yielded an impressive 97.25 cases.
