Winemaker Notes

We criss cross different vineyards to find the very best fruit for this lush Petite Sirah. The wine shows excellent density and richness, with the black fruit staying bold and upfront on the palate. It rounds itself nicely in the finish, staying grapey to the end. 100% estate vineyards.

Oak spiciness lights up the bouquet and flavors of this full-bodied firmly tannic wine. It's not as heavy in alcohol as some, but is very rich in flavors of black plums and blackberries, black pepper and light oak char, and has a good, grippy texture.

David Akiyoshi and Karen Birmingham of LangeTwins in Lodi make the Criss Cross wines in a partnership with wine importer Vino del Sol. Grown at LangeTwins’s vineyards in Clarksburg, this is a lovely petite, tense and floral, then big and rich with green fig, date and walnut flavors. It’s brisk and tannic, with plenty of stamina to last for ten years in the cellar.David Akiyoshi and Karen Birmingham of LangeTwins in Lodi make the Criss Cross wines in a partnership with wine importer Vino del Sol.

The vineyards just inland from the Sacramento River Delta, along the deep banks of the Sacramento River, comprise the Clarksburg AVA. The River Delta channels in cold air and fog from the Pacific Ocean creating a cooling effect in this area. Warm summer days quickly change to chilly evenings and make a great environment for grape growing. While a range of grape varieties grow here, Chenin blanc stands out the most, distinguishing itself in the appellation.

The Clarksburg Wine Growers and Vintners Association, made up of nearly 50 grower members and over a dozen wineries, has been working since the late 1980s to promote the high quality wine of its region.

With its deep color, 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 after being imported to California in the early 1880s. Quintessentially recognized today as a grape of the Golden State, Petite Sirah works well blended with Zinfandel and finds success as a single varietal wine in the state’s warmer districts. Somm Secret—Petite Sirah is not a smaller version of Syrah but it is an offspring of Syrah and the now nearly extinct French Alpine variety called Peloursin.
