Clay Shannon

Ovis Petit Sirah

In stock

Ovis (Latin for sheep) . . . is a small lot of wine that pays homage to the flock of sheep that help control the cover crops and weeds in the vineyards. The sheep and the dedicated Great Pyrenees guard dogs are the foundation of Clay Shannon’s sustainable farming practices. His love of protecting mother earth creates fertile lands that produce this extraordinary wine that he and his family offer to you with pride.

Amazing wine takes time. On the north slope of High Valley, on Franciscan soils, lies a small 2.7 acre block in the middle of Betsy's Vineyard. These 30+ year old vines produce small clusters of our most mouth watering Petite Sirah. This wine has aromas of ripe blueberries, plums and blackberries with undertones of dark chocolate and tobacco followed by flavors of dense fruit, dried herbs, warm spices and polished tannins. Enjoy anytime or lay down for 10+ years.

Time in Barrel: 28 months. 28% new French oak, 72% 2 year old French oak selections
