Our Grapes: SIRENE
SIRENE, (Clonally Similar to Petite Sirah, its American kin) Our vine stock was sourced from one of the first vineyards planted in Sonoma, a black skinned grape named after its discoverer, Dr. Francois Durif from the Rhone in 1880.
Known for its structure, extraordinary deep color and full-bodied flavors, long age worthy tannin finishes with the ability to age and improve for decades. Our vines produce small, intensely colored berries that produce powerful, fruity, dense wines that are inky dark and offer flavors of expresso, mocha, black pepper, blackberries, blueberries, plums, spice and licorice and lavender.
Built to last, we recommend you enjoy our wines over 10-15 years to show their true potential.
