Winemaker Notes

We carefully handcrafted only 1,100 cases of our 2007 Castle Rock Reserve Petite Sirah, a wine varietal with a history of success in California since the 1880's. The grapes were harvested from vines grown in California's Lake County, an increasingly prestigious Californian appellation. The wine was fermented and then aged for fifteen months in French and American oak barrels. Our Petite Sirah is a dark full-bodied, deeply concentrated wine with full tannins yielding aromas of ripe blueberry, coffee, grain and spice. On the palate it carries layers of ripe cherry, blackberry and plum. Its finish is long, smooth and harmonious with vanilla notes.

Critical Acclaim

W&S 90
Wine & Spirits
Castle Rock started as a negociant, and later set up long-term contracts for grapes to produce wines like this Lake County Petite. A supple, velvety textured red, this glows with dark cherry flavors over rich, black soil tannins. It's sweet and potent, a finely made petite.

Reaching up California's coastline and into its valleys north of San Francisco, the North Coast AVA includes six counties: Marin, Solano, Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino and Lake. While Napa and Sonoma enjoy most of the glory, the rest produce no shortage of quality wines in an intriguing and diverse range of styles.

Climbing up the state's rugged coastline, the chilly Marin County, just above the City and most of Sonoma County, as well as Mendocino County on the far north end of the North Coast successfully grow cool-climate varieties like Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and in some spots, Riesling. Inland Lake County, on the other hand, is considerably warmer, and Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel and Sauvignon Blanc produce some impressive wines with affordable price tags.

Petite Sirah

With its deep color, rich texture, firm tannins and bold flavors, there is nothing petite about Petite Sirah. The variety, originally known as Durif in the Rhône, took on its more popular moniker when it was imported to California from France in 1884. Despite its origins, it has since become known as a quintessentially Californian grape, commonly utilized as a blending partner for softer Zinfandel and other varieties, but also finds success as a single varietal wine. It thrives in warmer spots, such as Lodi, Sonoma and Napa counties.

In the Glass

Petite Sirah wines are typically deep, dark, rich and inky with concentrated flavors of blueberry, plum, blackberry, black pepper, sweet baking spice, leather, cigar box and chewy, chocolaty tannins.

Perfect Pairings

Petite Sirah’s full body and bold fruit make it an ideal match for barbecue, especially brisket with a slightly sweet sauce or other rich meat dishes. The variety’s heavy tannins call for protein-rich and strong flavors that can stand up to the wine.

Sommelier Secret

Don’t get Petite Sirah confused with Syrah—it is not, as the name might seem to imply, a smaller version of Syrah. It is, however, the offspring of Syrah (crossed with an obscure French variety called Peloursin), so the two grapes do share some genetic characteristics despite being completely distinct.
