Winemaker Notes

Petite Sirah has a long history in Napa Valley. We first became acquainted with it in the 1970s as a homemade wine that local grape growers made and stored in their barns and basements. The wine can be a burly wall-of-flavor unless tamed to allow its subtler, delicious dimensions and inherent elegance emerge. Toward that end we aged this wine for nearly four years in new French oak and another year in bottle prior to its release.

Critical Acclaim

WS 94
Wine Spectator
This is dark, bold and highly aromatic, yet retains a sense of restraint and grace. Sandalwood, white pepper, dried lavender and rosemary give in to ripe, juicy huckleberry and blueberry flavors. The tannins are both mouthfilling and plush. The finish just goes on and on. Drink now through 2030.
WE 93
Wine Enthusiast
This is big boisterous wine from Elias Fernandez and Doug Shafer that has been given some nice time in bottle after four years in new French oak. It's a viscous, black-as-night kind of experience. Coconut macaroon and juicy blackberry and blueberry substantiate structured, integrated tannin, finishing with an unexpected elegance.

Connoisseurs' Guide
Big, rich, saturated, extracted, dark, inky, dramatic are the first thoughts that arise when smelling this wine, and then come the very specific Petite Sirah characteristics of blackberries, dark spice, briar and underlying it all is a veneer of creamy oak. Some may find this wine to be too much of a good thing, and certainly it does not play by classic rules in its flirtations with bold, over-the top ripeness in both nose and mouth, but concentrated fruit sits at the very center here, and it not only saves the wine from itself but it makes the wine into a fascinating study of depth, power and all-out intensity. It will age for another half-decade with ease and probably last another ten years.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2010 Petite Sirah is a seriously endowed, dense purple-colored wine with loads of blue and black fruits, a touch of incense and floral notes. It’s full-bodied , monolithic and somewhat of a blockbuster, although it certainly will age beautifully for at least 20-25 years. Rating: 90+

We started making wine together in 1984. The first few years were challenging – experimenting, working long hours, learning from our mistakes, pushing ourselves to make the best wines we could. They were exciting years. This wine represents two friends going full circle – making wine together, trying new things, doing what we love. That’s the spirit of Eighty Four. Enjoy!

Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, Napa Valley is a now a leading force in the world of prestigious red wine regions. Though Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley, other red varieties certainly thrive here. Important but often overlooked include Merlot and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded on their own as well as for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel represents an important historical stronghold for the region and Pinot noir is produced in the cooler southern parts, close to the San Pablo Bay.

Perfectly situated running north to south, the valley acts as a corridor, pulling cool, moist air up from the San Pablo Bay in the evenings during the hot days of the growing season, which leads to even and slow grape ripening. Furthermore the valley claims over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—a combination excellent for world-class red wine production.
