2019 Petite Sirah
The Mettler 2019 Petite Sirah stays true to its varietal heritage with a deep and inky purple color, velvety mouth feel with aromas of dark berries and plum, with hints of pepper and honey on the finish. Well integrated tannins create a bold backdrop for the lush texture that carries the flavors through the lingering finish.
The Mettler family heritage honors over 100 years and five generations of farming in Lodi with the release of our exceptional Petite Sirah. The size of the crop, the time spent on the vine, and the many months aged in French oak barrels all reflect the care our family took to fully express the potential of this very small and unique portion of our vineyards.
The Lodi micro-climate is a true Mediterranean climate—excellent for growing Petite Sirah. The high daytime temperatures are tempered by Delta breezes which flow through the area in the evenings and cool down the fruit dramatically. The vineyards for the Mettler Petite Sirah are grown in the Mokelumne River sub-appellation. Referred to by some as “Old Lodi” and is known for its well-drained, sandy soils. Our vineyards are certified through the Lodi Rules sustainability program.
