A sultry and spicy nose, dark in color, with deep cranberry and blueberry aromas complemented by toasted cocoa and tobacco.

Our Estate Petite Sirah spent nearly three years in barrel, giving this wine a sultry and spicy nose. Dark in color, the deep cranberry and blueberry aromas are complemented by toasted cocoa and tobacco. The wine has round, supple tannins with lingering fruit and spice that last well into the five minute mark on the finish. This sumptuous wine drinks well now, but can age for the next several years.
Ratings
"Top Ten Summer Wines" - www.gayot.com. Dense, rounded tannins and juicy red and blue fruit flavors permeate this dark, luscious wine from Langtry Estate & Vineyards. The taste of baked blueberry, vanilla, star anise and cedar evoke memories of warm summer nights. This bold Petite Sirah makes a natural pairing with deeply flavored barbecued or grilled meats.

Production Notes
This five acre block takes its name from solidified magma, high in magnesium content, fractured to form the devigorating soils found here. Long a source of remarkable Petite Sirah, this moderately dense planting creates small vines, clusters and berries that are deeply hued and offer lovely blackberry flavors, unusually polished tannins and exquisite balance.
