Winemaker's Notes: "One of the main elements that often gets forgotten about with Petite Sirah is that it is a grape that is loaded with natural energy. Due to the fact that it is often left on the vine until the sugars reach astronomical levels in order to maximize color and density, the natural acidity and freshness of the grape is generally lost along the way, many weeks before it even gets to the winery. This inaugural vintage of the Mountain Tides Wine Co. California Petite Sirah showcases the freshness and energy that is possible with Petite Sirah when it is handled with care, with conscience, and with a desire to make a wine that is compelling both mentally and spiritually. This wine is not for those who take themselves too seriously. It is fun. It is joyful. And it is meant for everyone. The color of this wine is the first hint that it is not your usual Petite Sirah. It is light and red-colored instead of the typical inky, black wines that most associate with the variety. This wine smells like a fresh fruit punch, jam-packed with red fruit and dusty earth and tastes just as wonderful. There is a moderate amount of tannin due to the amount of whole cluster. Due to the lower alcohol (13.4%) and the freshness of the acidity, this wine works incredibly well with a variety of foods as well as just a great wine to enjoy on its own."
