THE WINE SHOP
NO COVER CHARGE
Grapes for the Petite Sirah wine were grown on the gently sloping rows of the Thornton Estate’s east block. We elected to drain the free-run wine from the fermentor before it was dry to complete the fermentation in barrels. The Thornton Winery Petite Sirah wine was aged primarily in French oak barrels (20% brand-new in order to preserve its vibrant fruit aromas of pepper spice and berries). The balance was aged in American oak from Pennsylvania and Minnesota.
