66% Petite Sirah, 34% Carignan
Dorn Vineyard Carignane was foot crushed whole-cluster and placed on the bottom of the stainless tank while the uncrushed whole bunch Petite Sirah was placed on top of the Carignane. We sealed the tank and took a dry-cap approach to this
wine to minimize extraction (no pump overs or punchdowns for two weeks on the skins). The Upton Petite Sirah was a true carbonic maceration in a stainless tank for two weeks. The wines were pressed separately and blended together after
fermentation for seven months elevage in a 5000L fiberglass tank. As always, unfined, unfiltered, zero sulfur.
