Petite Sirah


Landy Vineyard Petite Sirah 2013

Very little Petite Sirah left in the RRV, dominated by Pinot's, however David Rossi has done wonders! Very dark Ruby with aromas of deep dark fruit and exotic spices. On the palate big flavors of blackberry and ripe blueberry with smoky oak, floral notes and dusty drying smooth tannins. Well balanced on a long finish ending with a mineral character. — 5 days ago

Red Hills Lake County Petite Sirah 2017

Dark purple in color with a purplish rim.

Nice nose of black currants, plums, cooked cherries, sweet cedar, light earth, vanilla, licorice, cloves, spices, tobacco, chocolates, coffee and herbs.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and smooth

Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, cherries, wood, spices, vanilla, tobacco, peppercorn, espresso, chocolates, light earth and herbs.

Medium on the finish with fine grained tannins and cherries.

This is a very tasty Petite Sirah from Lake County. A nice sipping wine that doesn't need food at all. Easy drinking with nice complexity and a soft mouthfeel.

Good right out of the bottle and better with airtime. I gave it a couple of hours in a decanter.

This Single Vineyard is tasty, spicy and interesting. Really enjoyed the nose here.

Will continue to age nicely in the next 5 years.

Lava Vine

Suisun Valley Petite Sirah 2015

Very dark. Smells resinous and berry-lucious. Forests and good humus come to mind. Flavors are nice. It’s dry and very tannic, but it’s got nice anise, licorice stuff to go with the plum and dark berries. Very complex and filled with flavor. This is classic, classy Petite. — 22 days ago
