This Petite Sirah has a deep ruby color. Swirling it in the glass reveals hints of purple in the wake and on the lingering legs. Aromas of butterscotch, wild cherries, almonds, and tea leaves fill the glass. The first sip is filled with flavors of dark plum and blueberry. Subsequent sips reveal notes of sweet tobacco with rich tannins and cherry 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.
