This Petite Sirah displays an exceptional and unique character. The layered complexity, along with vibrant aromas and flavors, make Petite Sirah a great asset in blending. For this wine, we wanted to showcase the varietal on its own. We bottle this wonderfully rich wine exclusively for our Wine Club members and winery guests.

The winter of 2017-2018 broke the drought for most of California. Napa Valley received much needed rainfall throughout the season, totaling almost 60 inches of rain. The vines responded with full, healthy canopies for the long growing season. The weather was warm and sunny all season, which allowed the fruit to ripen at a slow and steady pace.
Food Pairing Notes
We recommend pairing our Petite Sirah with apple sage brown butter pork chops, andouille sausage cornbread stuffing and of course (how we pair it in the tasting room) dark chocolate with dried cherries.
Ample tannins fill the mouth to provide firm structure. This rich and powerful wine has flavors of dark cherries, luscious berries, and sweet sage.
