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.
