2009 Single Vineyard Petite Sirah

The grapes used to produce our 2009 Shannon Ridge Lake County Petite Sirah were picked from a special block on our Caldwell Ranch. The fruit was picked at the peak of ripeness and aged in 50% new American oak barrels and 50% Neutral French oak. The wine was put through an extended maceration to help soften tannins.
