Saturated purple-black color, and aromas of fresh blackberries, with hints of spices. Medium-bodied, with flavors of ripe plum, berries, and dark chocolate; vibrant, food-friendly acidity, and a long, peppery finish.

Winemaker Comments:

A distinctly Washington/Yakima Valley expression of Petite Sirah, grown at a barren, rocky 0.6-acre cool-climate growing site planted for ANIMALE, this wine reflects both the growing site and cool 2010 vintage.
