Winemaker's Notes:

For this special Reserve bottling we selected the oldest Petite Sirah wines from our 1996 Centennial Harvest and allowed the fruit extra hang-time for maximum maturity. This richly extracted, aromatic wine with its lingering flavors and exceptional smoothness is a rewarding choice for cellaring and celebrating. Here's to the next century of Petite Sirah!

Alcohol: 14.2% by volume

About Foppiano:

Foppiano Vineyards was founded in 1896 by Giovanni Foppiano, a native of Genoa, Italy. Giovanni emigrated from Italy to San Francisco in 1864, walking across the isthmus of Panama en route. He hoped to find his riches in the gold fields of California.

It was Giovanni who founded Foppiano Vineyards after moving to Healdsburg, California when his search for gold was unrewarding. He purchased a working winery called "Riverside Farm" on the same land where today's Foppiano Vineyards still stands and operates.

Petite Sirah, the family's favorite wine, has become the winery's signature wine, and is known nationwide as one of the country's top Petites year-in and year-out.
