TASTING NOTES:

This is our first offering of Petite Sirah at Savannah Chanelle, a varietal I have a long personal history with. The Vineyard is located in the Northern region of California and within the Manton Valley AVA, between Shasta and Lassen near Reading.  True to type, this 2015 offering shows off its beautiful, aromatic blueberry fruit with hints of dusty earth and black ripe fruits. The palate is rich, and although the tannic nature of Petite can be a little overwhelming, they have been tamed and provide a wonderful velvety structure to the mouthfeel.
