Richness, intensity and finesse. The palate is loaded from front to back with wild blackberries and red raspberries with a finish of freshly ground dark roasted coffee beans brewed and mixed with a hint of milk chocolate.
The Home Ranch selection of Petite Sirah grown at this beautiful Landy Sweetwater Springs Vineyard in Russian River offers small intense berries, very dark in color but shows blackberry pie fruit and soft tannins- glass staining. Deep and concentrated with a mineral backbone.
100% Petite Sirah
The berries are so small, that after we sort and destem into the open top fermenter, you could actually walk across an open tank of fruit, without sinking. It's that compact. As the vineyard has matured, we have found the fruit to make more complex wines and not just over the top Petite Sirah. That's a winemaker's dream.
