2007 Vintner Select
~Satin & Silk~
This wine has been treated like the special child of an already special parent, the 2007 Petite Sirah. It was taken from its barrels and kept in brand new Mireau oak specially crafted in the Burgundy area of France. This unique toasted oak has added a rich and silky mouth and a superbly smooth finish that delights the palate and adds pleasure with every sip.
Que Sirah Syrah
Bold and adventurous with a blend of 50% Petite Sirah and 50% Syrah, this wine has a peak aging potential of 15 to 20 years.
Alicante Bouschet, a cross between Grenache and Petite Alicante, and is the only grape that releases red juice. Silkwood's new release is very smooth on the palate without the tannic bite to the finish. It is finished in special oak for 49 months and packaged in oversized bottles with thick glass for protection from light and high temperatures. An intriguing wine to be enjoyed with all variety of beef, poultry, pork or game.
2007 Petite Sirah
Petite Sirah, this is the most “civilized” Petite we have labeled.
It is not quite as big and bold as some of our premium Petites, but it truly is the smoothest finishing Petite we have ever produced since beginning Petite’s in 1988.
Red Duet: Syrah & Cabernet Sauvignon
This Syrah blend is especially appealing to women and chocolate lovers. Red Duet has a rich, round mouth feel with a very smooth finish on the back of the palate.
We call this blend Red Duet because the Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah, all from our vineyards, are in perfect harmony. Awarded Best of Class at the California State Wine Competition in 2007 and a 94 Point, Gold Medal at the California Orange County Fair.
