2017 Mountain Tides Contra Costa Petite Sirah (12 x Bottle)

USA California

Just three barrels produced, a blend of four separate lots of Petite Sirah from Contra Costa County. Allison’s photography of Death Valley on the label references the wind-blown loess sandy soils that typify the Contra Costa County terroir. Limpid red, the nose is aromatically expressive with juicy red and blue fruits, and sweet spiced notes of clove and cardamom. The palate is initially fruit forward and juicy, but from the mid-palate to the finish there are nuances of duty earth, cedar, and an appetising bitter cherry note that holds everything together. Weighing in at a very reasonable 12.5% alcohol, this is a beautifully balanced expression of what Petite Sirah can do in California’s historic old vine vineyards.
