19 House Mountain Petite Sirah Pick 3
100% Petite Sirah
House Mountain vineyard is located about one mile upstream from our Estate and is a collaboration between Page Springs and the Petznick family of the Dancing Apache Ranch. This nine acre site is planted to several varieties including 2.3 acres of Petite Sirah. Part of a series of three picks that took place in this block, the pick 3, although later than picks 1 and 2, came from a part of the block where the vines had larger canopies and the fruit actually ripened a bit slower. So…contrary to the pick sequence, this wine bears more resemblance to pick 1 yet still has its own unique qualities. In particular, a nice chocolate and graphite note streaks through the wine giving it a dark quality unlike its cohorts.
