Inky dark fruit, lavender, sage, mint and soaring floral notes infuse the 2019 with striking layers of nuance. Deep and rich, yet light on its feet, the 2019 has a lot going on. Today, it is decidedly exotic, but at the same time, the tannins - always an issue with Petite - are already pretty tamed. 40 year old Petite Sirah from Bains vineyard in Lodi.
