2014 Petite Sirah (Magnum)
When our Grey Palm Estate vineyard was planted in 2000, it was primarily destined to be a Zinfandel wine source but, in the traditional Italian method so common in our region, a small block, only 1.1 acres, was planted in Petite Sirah. This was most often done to provide a blending grape to add texture and color to the Zinfandel wines. We at Cast Estate decided instead to make a small production batch of Petite Sirah, and we are so happy we did!
