Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
Aromatics unfold with olives, anise, coffee, thyme and dark fruits. On the palate the wine showcases a rich mouthfeel of bittersweet chocolate, espresso, blackberry cobbler, dusty cinnamon and mocha. The finish evolves with bright acidity and inky tannins that integrate with intense savory fruit.
"Girard's 2010 Petite Sirah is an absolutely beautiful bottle of wine. Sweet black currants, spices, violets, asphalt and grilled herbs all take shape in this mid-weight, yet luscious red. This is a decidedly refined, plush Petite Syrah with lovely balance, but little of the weight or firmness usually associated with the grape, which can be good or bad, depending on one's point of view. The wine's balance, however, is beyond reproach. This is a great showing from Girard. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025."

"Espresso notes highlight the intense, robust wild blackberry and blueberry flavors laced by floral, tea and spicy highlights. Nicely dense, with the thick tannins never getting in the way of the wine's focus and fresh fruit core."

The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...Read More About Napa Valley
Petite Sirah(peh-TEET seer-AH) Not So Small There is nothing petite about this grape. Petite Sirah, the result of a crossing between Syrah and Peloursin, is also known as Durif. Being the father, Syrah imparted some of its flavors and characteristics to its offspring, but the two grapes are decisively different.
