This unique blend opens with notes of black cherry, plum, and cigar box. On the palate, the wine has plenty of structure with polished tannins and lush notes of blue fruit, spice, and a fresh finish.
Food Pairing Notes
Decadent duck confit is a sublime food pairing for this red blend. The richness from the duck balances the tannins of the Petite Sirah, and the acid in the Carignane keeps the duck from becoming too heavy and disturbing the wine’s balance.
Long, warm days aided by the absence of marine influence marks our Home Ranch estate vineyard in Alexander Valley. The soils are composed of clay and clay loam with underlying layers of basalt, sandstone and volcanic rock. These old vines are challenged by the low nutrient level of the clay and the shallow topsoil, both of which force the vines to produce more concentrated fruit.
