This rich flavored grape is grown side by side with Zinfandel in Dry Creek Valley for over 100 years. This Petite Sirah offers rich aromas of ripe fruit, dried cherry, and chocolate. Full tannins and deeply structured, this wine could still benefit from additional aging or decanting. The palate offers complex fruit, spice, and oak. Try pairing Petite Sirah with beef stir-fry with Szechuan peppercorns or spicy lamb curry. 13%% Alc. Content.
