This Petite Sirah has a welcoming and delicate garnet color. Aromas of wild raspberries, brown sugar, and tea leaves fill the glass. One sip and the palate becomes overwhelmed with dark fruit flavors of plum and currant with soft tannins and blackberry on the finish.

Petite Sirah ("peh-teet-sir-rah") originated in the 1860s. It has discovered by French Botanist Francois Durif who named the grape after himself. It is rumored that the Durif grape accidentally made its way to California with some cuttings of Syrah vines. Not knowing what type of grape it was, it was given the nickname Petite Sirah and quickly gained in popularity. DNA testing has since proven that the Durif/Petite Sirah is a cross of Syrah and Peloursin.

Big, bold, and balanced with lots of dark red fruit on the nose along with hints of butter and earth. The palate reveals black currant, dark cherry, mushroom, leather, and earth with beautifully balanced tannins and a slight peppery spice on the back end. A long finish that makes you look forward to the next sip. This is an outstanding wine for one so young. Drinkable now but should be magnificent in a few years.
