Winemaker's Notes

This is what Petite Sirah should taste like! It offers a huge structure of deep, rich purple colors and concentrated flavors from nose to finish. The aroma is a ripe package of berries, chocolate, and spice, leading into an explosive mouthful of boysenberry, black pepper, and vanilla. The pedigree of fruit in this wine gives it a character and complexity youll savor - enjoy!

Barbecue and Petite Sirah are excellent companions. The Petite Sirah meal of choice for the Foppiano family is barbecued wild boar and may also include a rich chocolate berry desert.
