Winemaker's Notes

"Paul Dolan and the Thornhill family joined forces to buy Parducci in 2004, converting this old Mendocino winery into a thoroughly modern one. This petite takes Parducci into a new league."
-Wines & Spirits

"Last year's head-turning True Grit bottling redefined what was possible in good Petite Sirah, and this latest effort again comes through with flying colors. While its weight and plainly evident tannins are in keeping with varietal expectations, its very deep fruit and complexing mix of spice and oak moves it right to the head of the class. It may be a bit of a bruiser, but then that is what Petite Sirah is, and as much as it will please adoring fans of the grape early on, it deserves four or five years in which to reach its full potential."

Ive been drinking wine for about 4 or 5 years, and this wine is special. This wine is very Mellow, and seems fully matured. Tannins complement flavor perfectly, and the fruit (I remeber a bit of citrus) mixes with the earth tones to make a smooth blend. Really great. I've never been good at describing subtle notes of flavor, but if you are a wine snob this is one you have to review. buy at least 2 bottles, after one you will want another on reserve. I enjoyed this /w Salmon broiled and served on a bed of asparagus and mashed potatoes. I first began drinking it with a great spinach salad with light mango dressing, walnuts, and dried cherries. I can honestly say this was THE BEST combination of foods ive eaten in at least a year.

I was never introduced to this varietal, and to date, it is still the only bottle I have tried, but if True Grit is any indication of what this grape is capable of then I am certainly an adoring fan. It's supple, and complex. Try it, I think you'll love it.

Even today, the geography and climate of Mendocino County are similar to Northern Italy. The County's hillside vineyards provide plenty of exposure to ripen hearty red grape varieties, while deep...

Beyond Napa and Sonoma in the north you find a couple of other counties producing great wine. Among these are Mendocino and Lake County. The northernmost California winegrowing regions, these two counties are right above Napa and Sonoma, geographically. Yet, wine-wise they are very different - both from their southern neighbors and from each other. Notable Facts Mendocino...

Being the father, Syrah imparted some of its flavors and characteristics to its offspring, but the two grapes are decisively different. Petite Sirah is mostly found in California, where it gained...
