This rich, spicy Petite Sirah is produced from vineyards located on the foot of Mt.
Diablo at the edge of the San Francisco Bay. This area has a rich history of quality
grape production dating back more than 120 years. The vineyards are planted with two
selections of Petite Sirah, both from 80 to 100 years old. The individual vineyards that
encompass this wine all have their own aromatic and flavor profiles. Blended together, Rosenblum has created an incredible example of what Contra Costa can achieve with this varietal.
This wine exhibits great color with a bouquet and flavors of ripe blackberries, plums,
chocolate, black pepper, violets and spice. Contra Costa will soon be known as the
Mecca for Petite Sirah. This wine is amazing both in aromatics and flavors, not to
mention the color, which is jet black.
