2016 Stokes' Ghost Petite Sirah
The Petite Sirah grapes in this wine were harvested at night in the southernmost reaches of the Monterey appellation, an ideal location for growing this dramatic, heart-stopping variety.
Upon arrival to the winery, the grapes were crushed and fermented in small lots to extract the full flavors and tannin structure for which Petite Sirah is so well known. The wine was then pressed and racked at dryness for oak aging
Deep and brooding, this Petite Sirah is brimming with dark fruit flavors of black cherry and blackberry. The intense, jammy fruit provides the drama while subtle notes of violet and white pepper bring finesse. Stokes’ Ghost is full-bodied with balanced tannins and a finish that lingers on the palate.
