2015 Langtry Serpentine Meadow Petite Sirah, Guenoc Valley AVA
Our 2015 Serpentine Meadow Petite Sirah opens with decadent aromas of cranberry, blackberry fruit, clove and pepper spices on the nose. The mouth boasts similar flavors that entice the senses with cranberry, cherry and plum at the forefront and a hint of leather balanced by smooth, silky tannins. Notes of sweet tobacco, vanilla and spices linger on the finish.

This five acre block takes its name from solidified magma, high in magnesium content, fractured to form the devigorating soils found here. Long a source of remarkable Petite Sirah, this moderately dense planting creates small vines, clusters and berries that are deeply hued and offer lovely blackberry flavors, unusually polished tannins and exquisite balance.
