WE: 93. Aromas of ripe blueberries, juicy black plums and blackberries with a hint of dark chocolate. On the palate, generous flavors of dense fruit, dried herbs and warm spices with polished tannins.

"This vintage was one of our longest, but best, on record!  It takes time to develop the deep, dark flavors and aromatics of noteworthy Petite Sirah.  In a small 22.7-acre block in the middle of Betsy's Vineyard, you'll find our 30+ year-old Petite Sirah vines." - Clay Shannon

Clay Shannon has always been a bit of a maverick.  In 1996, he decided to buck convention and set out on his own to establish a progressive, pioneering winery and ranch in Lake County, California.  This wild, challenging terrain captured Shannon's imagination and inspired his uncompromising commitment to the land itself.  "We wanted to grow the best fruit possible", says Clay, "but we wanted to do it in a way that made us happy living there."

Today, Shannon Family of Wines includes over 2,000 acres of mountain property, roughly half of which is under vine.  With the earth's climate under threat, we're using our resources to do something about it.  This includes transforming 1,000 acres into a regenerative organic farming system that greatly reduces environmental impact.  Our home is situated on the ridges of ancient volcanic soil at higher elevations.  And while conditions may seem extreme, the guest experience is extraordinary.  Rustic charm, stunning lake views, and abundant wildlife underscore the western spirit alive in Clear Lake.  At Shannon Family of Wines, we're true to ourselves and to the land.
