Petite Sirah Cabernet Sauvignon Blend

Varietal: Red Blend

Tasting Notes:
This blend is bursting with aromas of fruit, black currant and blueberry from the Petite Sirah, with black cherry notes from the Cabernet. Vanilla, black pepper and some spicy, herbal hints round out the nose. Fruit flavors match the aromas, adding bright acidity and big, lush tannins to the mouthfeel and a lingering cedar and spice finish.

Pair with: Black peppercorn crusted ribeye, braised lamb shank, smoked mushroom risotto or French silk pie.

Growing Season Notes 2015 growing season began with the vineyards in recovery mode. November 2014 started with unseasonably warm temperatures followed swiftly by severe cold, causing vine damage and loss throughout Sunnyslope. When bud break began in the spring, growers recognized an approximate 40% crop loss. The 2015 growing season started with early bud break and intense heat throughout the growing season. July brought unseasonable rains and powdery mildew pressure in the vineyards. The harvest season was warm and long, allowing grapes to finish with intense fruit flavors and balanced acids. Overall, what the 2015 vintage lacked in quantity was compensated for in great quality. Small berry size bursting with intense fruit flavors. Delicious!
