2015 Langtry "Serpentine Meadow" Petite Sirah
This 2015 Petite Sirah predominates with its usual notes of blackberry, and dark cherry, enriched by spicy notes of clove, white pepper and vanilla-caramel on the nose. The palate bursts with dark berry fruits enhanced by rich, full tannins with subtle undertones of leather and a crisp acidity. The finish is long and polished with sweet tobacco and vanilla oak which linger longer than the bottle will seem to last!
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.
