2016 Petite Sirah
In 2007 Cindy decided that she really liked Petite Sirah and wanted to make some for the winery. Because it’s not widely planted in WA state, she asked Leif Olsen of Olsen Vineyard to plant us an acre. Having a full-time job and a business to run, Cindy is a busy lady. As she tells the story she “honestly forgot to mention it to David or Morgan” - For four years. Subsequently, about halfway through the 2009 harvest Morgan got a phone call from Leif asking when he wanted to pick his Petite Sirah. "What Petite Sirah?" was Morgan's response. Now, with quite a few vintages behind us (and a great response to the wine!) we're able to look back and chuckle about the beginnings of our Petite Sirah. Cindy is still not allowed to order fruit. The 2016 Petite Sirah is 100% Kiona vineyard fruit and aged 20 months in 30% new French oak 500L puncheons. As Morgan put it "It's really damn delicious. Dark, rich, concentrated. You could stain your deck with it."
