“I used atypical Old World co-fermentation techniques with native yeasts to intermingle the aromatics and flavors of the three varietals in this blend.  Petite Sirah dominates the blend (59%) and was first to be harvested.  This was followed by Syrah (28%) a week later and added to the tank just as the Petite Sirah fermentation was beginning. Zinfandel (13%) followed a few days later. Venant du Coeur  is driven by the deep purple hue of the Petite Sirah with its masculine notes of blueberry, earth, pencil lead and tar.  Syrah and Zinfandel add additional layers of complexity.  On the nose they contribute  bacon-fat and sweet pipe tobacco along with a layer of spice and pepper notes on the palate.  Texturally  the wine is rich and mouth coating leading to a long finish accented by molasses, blackberry and kirsch.” — Rudy Zuidema, Winemaker
