Winemaker's Notes

This Petite Sirah is bold yet elegant with pepper, currants, blackberry and earth tone spice in the bouquet. Flavors are of ripe dense blackberries, hints of vanilla, currants, black olives, and exotic Asian spices. Bringing Carignane into the blend adds a new, broader and softer dimension along with a hint of rose petal in the bouquet to create an old vine Pickett Road taste experience. While this wine should age for twelve to twenty years, don't miss the opportunity to experience it relatively soon. Pair it with marinated grilled venison, skewered lamb kabobs, or baked ham with honey, clove and peppercorn glaze.

This fine Petite Sirah comes from two vineyards, Keniefick Ranch and Frediani Vineyard, that sit right across from each other on Pickett Road at the foot of the Palisades mountains in Northern Napa County. The vines vary in age from 8 to over 100 years old, and are both vertically trellised andhead pruned.

The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...
