Winemaker's Comments:
The 2012 Sonoma Valley Petite Sirah is an incredibly intense wine with deep dark fruits on the nose, a lively palate and complex finish. The palate is delighted with lovely plum and red currant flavors with a hint of chocolate. Rich texture with plentiful, ultra-fine tannins are sublime.

Petite Sirah
Petite Sirah is the same as the French variety known as Durif, a cross of Peloursin, with the true Syrah. A French nurseryman, Dr. François Durif, propagated the grape trying for resistance to powdery mildew and named it after himself, in the 1870s. Petite Sirah has long been an important blending grape, prized primarily for its deep color and fairly intense tannin. It is the variety most often chosen to blend into Zinfandel for added color, complexity, body, and to tone down the tendency of Zins toward "jammy" fruit.
