A relatively new variety, Petite Sirah first appeared in France in the mid-1800s. It is a crossing of Syrah and Peloursin. Today, in Northern California's Inland Valley, the Lodi AVA grows most of the world's Petite Sirah producing full bodied wines of extraordinary deep color.
An immediately noticeable dark inky color typical of Petite Sirah greets your wine glass. Flavor and bouquet of blueberries, chocolate and black pepper. Nicely balanced, dense tannin structure balanced against the jammy character of this wine.
Food Pairing Suggestions
An excellent compliment to red sauce pasta dishes, roasted pork, barbecued beef and grilled chicken or salmon.
