2014 Reserve Petite Sirah, Captain Joe's
Rich in color, true to this varietal, our 2014 Captain Joe's Petite Sirah is bursting with expressive aromas of mocha and dark red fruits. Lush and full-bodied, the bright cherry and plum flavors are unified with notes of pepper and spice. It's rich structure gives way to smooth tannins, which persist on the palate with notes of caramel and toffee.
Captain Joe's Petite Sirah honors our founder James Concannon's son, affectionately know as Captain Joe because of his service in the First Cavalry. Every year Captain Joe produced special wines that were shared only at the family dining table, and this wine is a tribute to his tradition. This Petite Sirah is composed from four of our estate vineyards favored by the winemaking team for their consistent quality and fruit-fowardness.
