Tasting Notes

On the nose, the 2013 Petite Sirah has notes of elegant wild licorice, blueberries, and complex oak. With a sip, the wine slams the palate with a stampede of plum and white pepper flavors which perfectly transition to blackberry and a long vanilla-kola finish. This wine will leave you begging for one more sip.

Vineyard Notes

Lava Cap sourced grapes from two vineyards for our 2013 Petite Sirah. The Granite Hill vineyard and the Leahy Vineyard. Both vineyards consistently produce highly decorated Petite Sirah wine. The soil in the Granite hill is a granitic loam giving the grapes plenty of water and nurtients that allow the vines to develop complexity and depth with a lengthy growing season. The Leahy vineyard grows in decompossed, iron-rich slate, the perfect medium for a low yeild and high stress vineyard, resulting in grapes of intense dark-fruit flavors.
