Medium ruby color.
Aromas of red fruit, tomato,
Dry. Flavors of bright red fruit, tomato, herbal. Moderate tannins provide structure while the flavors are light and fresh. Lovely. Great pairing for pasta with red sauce.

I am continually impressed with the wines from this small family run winery in Calistoga. Their Valdiguie is one of my favorites. — 3 years ago

Delicious ripe cherry on the nose and palate, with a touch of cinnamon. Medium-bodied. We drank this slightly chilled due to scorching hot weather in San Diego and it was incredibly refreshing. — 2 years ago
Watermelon on the nose. Needed a little bit of opening up. We poured it through an aerator and that did the trick. — 3 years ago
From the East of the Valpolicella Classico area, more limestone soils, less winds from the Garda.
Much tighter and a bit more structured, more black fruit vs the typical red cherry.
Pretty powerful for ‘just’ a Superiore, yet balanced and with good depth. Juicy, fresh, nothing to do with the soft jammy style.
A perfect food wine. Really nice. — 6 months ago

Olives and black fruit on the nose. Full bodied, with long finish. Perfect balance of fruit and acidity. I've previously tried Tedeschi's 2017, 2016, and now 2009 vintages of petite sirah. I wonder if 2009 was a very hot year, as the 2009 did seem higher in alcohol than I remembered either of the other vintages. — 3 years ago
