Our Petite Sirah has an intense color and generous bouquet of rich blackberries and blueberries, vanilla bean and roasted coffee, all in a remarkably approachable glass. The wine is crafted to unleash dark and luscious characteristics, while managing tannins to deliver an opulent and juicy Petite Sirah.

STONERIVER VINEYARDS

 

VINEYARD INFORMATION: 

All of our vineyards have been independently certified LIVE sustainable and Salmon Safe since 2012. LIVE is the highest certification in the world for sustainable viticulture. No herbicides have been used in our vineyards since 2017.

2017 GROWING CONDITIONS: 

2017 provided a cooler, wetter and longer growing season than the previous three years. Bud break started in mid-April, a little later than usual. Average harvest dates were pushed out about three weeks. The water table in our vineyards was a little higher than normal due to a greater snowpack in the mountains. This resulted in our vine canopies requiring greater maintenance because of abnormally vigorous growth. Several fires in the surrounding areas contributed to a near continuous concentration of smoke over the Valley floor for a period of about 8 weeks and was cause for concern. However, with most of our bottling complete, we have found no evidence of smoke taint and lots of indications that we are benefitting from the later harvest. We are looking forward to another banner year of award-winning wines.
