Winery Notes:
Vineyards:
The Petroni Vineyards 2014 Syrah is grown on two blocks of our Estate properties. The first block is situated at 600 feet on gentle southeast facing slopes at the southern edge of Poggio alla Pietra. Fruit from this block gives the wine subtle richness and depth of flavor. The second block is at our Trinity Ranch property situated at 2000 ft elevation on the Napa and Sonoma county line on the Oakville grade. The Trinity Ranch property offers dark, deep and tannic wines. All our wines from 2012 are made with certified organic grapes.

Winemaking:
With the fruit coming in perfect condition it was crushed to tank and allowed to cold soak for several days before initiating a warm ferment. The wine was held on skins for an extended period before pressing to French oak barrels of which 20% were new.

Tasting Notes:
A typically deep, dark Syrah with a blood red/crimson edge. Generously aromatic including crushed dark cherries, blackberry, licorice, violets spice with a nice savory aspect to it reminiscent of cured meats. Very harmonious though still with great intensity on the palate. A solid core of fruit is complemented with savory and spice notes, balanced and complex the wine holds one’s attention as its plush fruit and vanilla lingers on the palate.
