Additional Information

In the late 1960s, Jerry Lohr began an extensive investigation of California grape growing regions ? searching for the ideal location for his first vineyard. Jerry was raised on a South Dakota farm; his agricultural roots armed him with an innate sense for the relationship between climate, soil, and location. His research and instincts led him to the Central Coast, an area just beginning to explore its potential for winegrowing.

Tasting Notes

The 2015 vintage presented its own unique challenges for Tower Road Petite Sirah. Budbreak occurred in mid-March, which is on the early side. Fair weather through April was followed by an unusually cold period for flowering in the first half of May. Berry set was prolonged and varied with Petit Sirah, setting a better crop than most other varieties, but spread out over an extended period of time. Color change occurred in late July under nice warm (not hot) temperatures. Veraison to harvest was characterized by alternating periods of five days or so with temperatures in the 80s and then five days over 100?F. We aligned the picking of our three vineyard blocks at the end of each cooling cycle to capture the best flavors in the fruit.
