We could not pass over the opportunity to partner with a gem of a Petite Sirah vineyard site in the heart of illustrious Stag's Leap. Located on the eastern side of the Stag's Leap region, this small vineyard site offers coarse gravely soil resulting in less water absorption, grater stress on the vine and ultiamtely great intensity and flavor.
Our small lot 2018 JAX Petite Sirah sports a deep garnet-purple color and vibrant notions of crushed red currants, Morello cherries, boysenberries and wild sage with touches of charcoal, damp soil, raspberry leaves and mossy tree bark in the undercurrent. The medium to full-bodied palate delivers intense, tightly wound black and red fruit layers, supported by firm, ripe tannins and lively freshness, finishing long and layered. Give it a good 4-5 years in bottle and drink it over the next 20+ years.
