Spicy aromas of black pepper and vanilla. Bursting with flavors of black fruit and moderate sweetness, this beauty is followed by rich tannins to round it out. A cohesive mix of classic Tawny and Ruby Port character.

Winemaker Notes
If you are looking for a great dessert wine, this is the wine for you! This Late Harvest Petite Sirah is dark and dense and filled with spicy aromas of black pepper and vanilla. Bursting with flavors of black fruit and moderate sweetness, this beauty is followed by rich tannins to round it out. A cohesive mix of classic Tawny and Ruby Port character. - Mark R. Lyon, Winemaker
Food Pairing Notes
Great on its own or paired with any dark chocolate desserts; my favorite is a molten chocolate cake with fresh raspberry sauce drizzle.

Production Notes
2012 was back to normal and a beautiful California vintage. A mild spring then led into a long and cool growing season. The extra time on the vines allowed the skin and seed tannin to develop perfectly and is expressed in this wine. This Late Harvest Petite Sirah is aged for two and a half years in neutral oak barrels.
Vineyard Notes
The Serpentine Meadow Vineyard located in the Guenoc Valley is a five acre block that 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.
