2015 Goosecross Petite Sirah

Black cherry fights blueberry and fig for your attention while toasted spice and a zing of peeper sneak in on the finish. With a bold acidity and firm yet subdued tannins, this wine pairs beautifully with gamey meats and pastas but is just as happy starring solo.

The Nord Ridge vineyard is located on the eastern slopes of Howell Mountain at an elevation of 1,800 feet, with the vineyard rows terraced into the hillside, on a steep 30% grade.
The soils are lower in nutrients and have poor minerality following years of weathering. This combined with dry farming, puts the vines under considerable "stress" - a very desirable attribute for a vineyard, which leads to more flavor concentration in the skins of the berries. Sourced from one hillside block, picked on two separate occasions - top section ripens earlier and has smaller berries. No cold soak as dark and big enough, pressed off skins early.
