Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Alcohol By Volume: 14.5%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Can a wine be rugged and true? Can it be swaggering, brash and confident? Taste True Grit and you'll answer, "Yes!" Petite Sirah survived phylloxera and Prohibition, and some of those old, burly vines still stand, among the oldest in America. We've been making Petite Sirah at Parducci for generations. We know our way around this varietal, and True Grit is something special: big and bold, with plenty of heart. Dark, intense, peppery, and a little rough around the edges. Brash when young, but worth waiting for – it mellows with age.

Heady aromas of ripe fruit, white pepper and vanilla are followed by an intense rush of fresh blackberry, dark chocolate, pepper and caramel flavors. True Grit is a natural mate for seared steak, sausage, grilled pork loin, and smoked meats. This wine is big, but can dance lightly in both familiar and exotic menu settings.

Excellent - tasted this wine for the first time at the Parducci tasting room in Mendocino and feel in love with its excellent mouth feel, medium tannins, and bold flavor. The 2007 True Grit has become my favorite red wine and I agree that it tastes like pure velvet. Hurrying up and ordering more via wine.com before others discover this beauty.

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...

The northernmost California winegrowing regions, these two counties are right above Napa and Sonoma, geographically.

Learn About Petite Sirah

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. Petite Sirah is mostly found in California, where it gained...
