Shannon Ridge Petite Sirah Lake County 2012.
High elevation collection.
Petite Sirah Shannon Ridge is a family-owned vineyard and winery located on the steep mountain slopes of lake county, California. We are dedicated to sustainable farming practices thus producing the finest mountain fruit possible. The distinctive terroir of each of our hillside vineyards or high elevation ranches gives the winemaker a full flavor palette from which he creates these robust food friendly "high elevation collection" wines.
The grapes used to produce our petite sirah were harvested from our select vineyards in lake county, California. Sugar at harvest was at 26 degrees brix. The grapes were put through an early press with a slow extraction of color and tannins from the skins as well as 100% malolactic fermentation in American oak.
