This ia another well crafted, dark and inky Petite Sirah from Volante. It starts with delightful aromas of spicy blackberry, baked blackberry pie and vanilla that segue into a palate loaded spicy bramble and bright black fruit flavors. Easy to like.

Winemaker's Notes

Inky, intense black purple, fruit driven Petite Sirah. The terrific toasty oak meshes well with soft and framed tannins. Aging well with vibrant color and a lot of fruit on the palate.
