2014 Petite Sirah, Shell Creek Vineyards
Rich and deep with intense flavors of dark cherry and blackberry.
Shell Creek Vineyards
31 months in 25% new French and American oak
Whole berry fermentation
Aromas of plum jam are laced with nuances of tarragon and vanilla. It is concentrated and viscous, with fine-grained tannins that give the impression of dusty blackberry and dried fig. The extended finish lingers with dark notes of coffee and toast.

Food Pairing Notes
Chocolate is often suggested with big red wines, but sweet foods don’t usually flatter strong wines. Old Vine Petite Sirah is dry, but it shares cocoa and mocha notes found in bitter chocolate. It will be a memorable experience for thoughtful tasters.
