This expressive and full bodied Petite Sirah exhibits a deep black/purple hue with layers of blackberry liqueur, blueberries, raspberries, violets, anise, hints of cloves and a gorgeous texture with seamless, integrated tannins.91 points Wine Spectator
The 2014 Adaptation Petite Sirah is crafted from two of our favorite Napa Valley vineyards, Kennefick Ranch Vineyard in Calistoga, and Langtry Vineyard located just outside of Pope Valley in the Northeastern corner of the Napa Valley. Thriving in the warm climate that these two vineyard sites provide, the resulting wine is truly expressive of the respective terroir.
The 2014 vintage blessed the vines with plenty of warmth and sunshine, allowing us to
craft a wine with intense purity of fruit, density and concentration. Each lot was hand
harvested after peak hang time which rewarded us with small concentrated berries
beaming with personality.
