Our 2016 “Bea's Knees” is 100% Petite Sirah from the Oberti Vineyard in Suisun Valley, sustainably farmed with minimal inputs by Gary Mangels. Petite Sirah thrives in Suisun Valley under Gary's capable care. This is a massive, dense, almost chewy, big red wine (well, bordering on black, actually). The wine is redolent of blackberries and dark chocolate. It is juicy and lush on the palate with a huge structure that will keep this wine tasting great for days on your counter (if you can stay away from it), and for decades in your cellar. We harvested 4.4 tons on September 22 at 25.4 Brix, pH 3.73 and 5.1 g/L titratable acidity. We pressed on October 10 and the wine matured in neutral French oak barrels. The finished wine has 14.7 % alcohol, 5.5 g/L titratable acidity and a pH of 3.82.
