Vineyard Notes:

Esperanza Vineyard, Calistoga CA – Small vineyard in the heart of Calistoga. Beautiful setting at the base of the Palisades with cool air from the mountains to protect and temper the vines on hot days. Perfect spot for creating flavor concentration and deep color in the fruit.


Hand picked in the cool early morning fog of Calistoga. Carful sorting and destemming for whole berry fermentation in an open top tank. Warm fermentation for color extraction and a three week extended maceration for rounding and softening the tannin structure. The Petite Syrah was aged in 50% new American oak barrels, adding a warm spice to the finish of the wine.
