2005 Petite Sirah
Calaveras County

This Petite Sirah comes from the Salt Springs valley in Calaveras. It is an early ripener with great natural tannin structure that does not inhibit the darker ripe fruit characters. The 2005 growing season started with a late bloom followed by a fairly average warming season which enabled us to acclimate the vines to the intense summer in this warm region. The fruit load was thinned to a projected 2.5 tons per acre, quite a small crop for these rich deep soils. To achieve full maturation of fruit without sacrificing natural acidity, we harvested this in the middle of September.

Rating: 98
I really love big, bold reds. Up till now, some of my favorite reds have been cabs. As I said until now! I'm no expert, I just know what I like, and I really enjoyed this petite sirah. Incredible bottle of wine. I need to get some more. Obviously it isn't available in Wisc. Have to join their wine club so I can get more.
