2014 Marston Family Vineyard Petite Sirah
Maturing from a small 3-acre plot, our 2014 Petite Sirah captures everything I love about this varietal – power, finesse and character. Inspired by the legendary bottlings of Sean Thackrey from our estate (and the namesake of my childhood horse), we were fortunate to combine the uniformity and balance of the vintage with the complexity of the smaller berry size to produce an exceptional return to Petite Sirah for Marston Family Vineyard.

“An intense bouquet of wild blueberries, huckleberry and clematis flower leads into a layered mouth of fresh blackberries, black plum, pomegranate and red currant. Dark purple in color and full bodied with a silky mouthfeel, the richness combines effortlessly with the cedar tannins for a long finish of dark chocolate and black raspberry.” ~ Marbue Marke
