Rosenblum Cellars Petite Sirah Pickett Road 2005
Petite Sirah from Napa Valley, California
Blend: 80% Petite Sirah, 20% Carignane
This Petite Sirah is bold, yet elegant. Bringing Carignane into the blend adds a broader and softer dimension to the finished wine, along with a hint of rose petal in the bouquet punctuated with currants, blackberry, pepper and earthy spice. The flavors are of ripe dense blackberries, hints of vanilla, currants, black olives, and exotic spices. While this wine should age from 12 to 20 years, don't miss the opportunity to experience it now.
Pair this beauty with deep fried, spiced chicken livers or a roasted duckling stuffed with turnips.
"A fabulous offering, the 2005 Petite Sirah Pickett Road Vineyard exhibits a dense purple color followed by a sumptuous nose of blueberries, black currants, crushed rocks, and graphite. Full-bodied with admirable concentration and sweet tannin, it should evolve for 10-15 or more years."

Rosenblum Cellars Winery
Rosenblum Cellars Winery is located in the historic Todd Shipyard Building in the City of Alameda. The picturesque building constructed around 1910 sits right at the edge of San Francisco Bay. Our view is spectacular, and the cooling bay breezes give us natural air conditioning. The grapes for our wines come from over 30 different vineyards located in Napa, Sonoma, Paso Robles and Contra Costa County. Many of the vineyards are over 75 years old, head-pruned and dry farmed. The old plow on our labels symbolizes our down-to-earth and natural style of winemaking.

The state of South Australia, which produces about 60% of the country's wine, also has the most wineries and sub-regions, including McLaren Vale, Clare Valley, Coonawarra and Barossa Valley. New South Wales is home to the Hunter Valley, while the smaller, southern state of Victoria is best known for theYarra Valley. Head way west to the very large state of Western Australia and you'll find the tiny region of Margaret River at the southern tip.
