2016 Scott Harvey Petite Sirah

2016 Scott Harvey Petite Sirah

Grown in the mountainous Chapman Syrah Vineyard of Shenandoah Valley, Amador County.  This vineyard is a steep rocky decomposed granite west facing slope.  Extremely low yields from these highly-stressed mountain vineyards produce first growth quality fruit.  The harvest of 2016 produced a small crop of exceptional flavor.  Grapes came in with small bunches and berry size allowing for a more extractive vintage.  

Produced in a Southern Rhone style.  Aged in French oak cooperage to develop a well-rounded wine with up front firmly structured tannins and inky black color.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Aromas of earthy dark fruit of blueberry and blackberry. Savory spices on the mid-palate with that Petite Sirah grippy varietal fruit. Well balanced wine made in the European Old World style to accompany red meat dishes. This is a 15-20 year ager.
