Vineyard Notes
The vintage: A cold, wet October cut short what was to be a textbook vintage. Dryness at bloom, set, and the summer combined with moderate (but not extreme heat) was near-ideal; however, those late-maturing varieties saw a rough autumn. Vines that were well-drained with good air-movement through their canopies did well in the tough conditions.
Production Notes
97% Petite Sirah, 3% Viognier
Winemaker Notes
"Grapes for this wine came from two primary Mendocino vineyard sites: an old Redwood Valley vineyard contributed rich berry character, and a Ukiah vineyard overlooking the Russian River gives it a fine white pepper and spice quality. A small amount of Viognier lifts the nose (adding an aromatic white varietal is an Old World, Rhone Valley technique)." - Winemaker Bob Swain

this is the wine we used to watch the original version of True Grit. We used a later vintage to watch the new version. As was the movie the 2004 true Grit was superb. One of my favorite wines of all times the 2004 True Grit.
