About the vineyard:
Naturally farmed in the alluvial soils below Mt. Aukum, Somerset Vineyard produces fruit with opulent color, compelling tannins, and complex earth and fruit flavors. These characteristics are created by vines grown in the distinct micro-climate of the vineyard's valley floor location. Somerset Petite Sirah is at the heart of a robust, full-bodied wine, whose luscious and enticing qualities continue to gracefully unfold with time. Anticipate wine with an inviting nose of plumb, blackberry, black cherry, and a touch of cedar enhancing a voluptuous body and long finish. Somerset Vineyard is managed with the help of Naylor Farms. Head-trained and VSP vines are carefully thinned to no more than 2 clusters per cane, with second growth and shoulder clusters dropped before harvest. Our primary objective is to achieve the highest quality possible, not quantity. To preserve optimum grape quality at harvest, the fruit will be delivered in refrigerated box-truck.
