Rich and dark, the 80% Petite Sirah from two Dry Creek Valley vineyards in this wine brings the deep base and sets the tone. The 10% Zinfandel and 10% Carignane from our mountain vineyard provides melody and harmony to this complex composition. Deeply satisfying now, proper cellaring for 8-10 years will add further depth and layers for future enjoyment.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Concentrated aromas of freshly crushed blackberry fill the glass, along with an essence of depth and structure. The seductive intensity found on the nose is repeated on the palate. A delicious, inky blend of plum and zesty black raspberry merges with traces of savory sage, eucalyptus and violet. Creamy mocha appears as the flavors expand and linger. Polished tannins and integrated oak provide the broad-shouldered structure that balances the intense flavors.
Vineyard Notes
In 2015, we sourced the base wine grapes from two distinct vineyards in Dry Creek Valley to showcase the overlapping terroirs. With a healthy dash of Zinfandel and Carignane added to the blend, we’ve created a delicious wine that truly speaks to our overall sense of place.
Winemaker Notes
Petite Sirah is a grape not widely grown outside of California, and could be considered as much of an American variety as Zinfandel. It has more often been used as a blending component to enhance the color, tannins and structure of other red varietals. Unblended, we usually find Petite Sirah wines to be rather monolithic and one-dimensional. Since our first vintage of the varietal in 1994, we’ve chosen to blend other full-flavored varietals that complement Petite Sirah, and add complexity, layers of flavors, spice and length. This Petite Sirah is a big chewy mouthful, reflective of the vintage, with balance and complexity not traditionally found in varietal bottlings of this “not-so-petite” wine.
Food Pairing Notes
This hearty red deserves to be paired with equal fare, like bison bourguignon, or Châteaubriand served with potatoes au gratin.
