The vines in this amazing vineyard were planted in 1911 (the oldest PS vineyard in the Napa Valley) high up on Spring Mountain, west of St. Helena. We were offered three separate blocks in May 2000, and that first vintage catapulted itself to become the top rated Petite Sirah in 2003 Wine Spectator. Given that the steepest part of the learning curve with a new vineyard takes place between the first and second vintage, one can only imagine what these wines will bring to your palate in the future.

Tasting Notes
A jammy nose loaded with aromas of blackberry pulp and truffle chocolate leads to a mouth elegant yet powerful, chewy, oozing with gobs of sweet fruit and vanilla. Immense. Wow! Who has patience?

Wine Spectator 89
"Supple and harmonious for Petite, with red plum, wild berry and boysenberry flavors that are rich, tight and concentrated, riding on a tightly focused beam. The tannins grab on and hold on, giving it detail and structure. Decant. Best from 2007 through 2012. 400 cases made. (J.L.)"
