Winemaker Notes

If you love a big, red wine, the 2016 Petite Sirah is a “must have.” Succulent and rich, its deep, dark purple inky color leads way to bold aromas of warm berry pie and loads of blueberry mixed with vanilla and a light pepper spice. Its full flavor of lush berries mixed with dark chocolate, warm cedar and vanilla gives way to a delightfully smooth finish with moderate tannins.

The Petite Sirah is a perfect wine to serve with dishes like veal saltimbocca or braised beef with winter vegetables. You can also try it with other dishes that contain a variety of mushrooms.

The Kautz Family grows these Petite Sirah grapes in their Teichert Ranch vineyard in the Sloughouse sub-appellation of the Lodi AVA. These soils contain large stones throughout, They are well-drained soils ideal for growing world-class wine grapes.

Blend: 90% Petite Sirah, 10% Zinfandel

Wine Enthusiast
Intense and focused fruit flavors seem to light up this full-bodied, densely packed wine. It also shows generous and well-integrated oak shadings of cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla that sit on mouthcoating berry flavors and are framed by fine-grained tannins. Best Buy.

Ironstone John and Gail Kautz Winery Image

The story of Ironstone Vineyards started in the hands of John Kautz, a young row crop farmer from Lodi who saw the future in growing wine grapes in Lodi. With 12 acres in 1948, John quickly built an excellent reputation as a premium wine grape supplier, amassing over 5,000 acres of grapes in Lodi and the Sierra Foothills and eventually becoming one of the top ten wine grape growers in California.

In 1988, John, his wife Gail and their children dedicated themselves to the creation of a wine of their own. While still maintaining grape sales to top wineries around the world, they brought award-winning winemaker Steve Millier aboard to launch Kautz wines, which would evolve into Ironstone Vineyards, a wine brand dedicated to the production of exceptional wines of unparalleled quality, outstanding value and everyday approachability.

In 1989, using dynamite, pick axes and shovels, a crew of miners carved through limestone and Calaveras Schist Rock on Gail’s family ranch in Murphys, California and fashioned the site of Ironstone’s wine aging caverns, which in the beginning, also served as the facility’s first tasting room., Ironstone Wines and the Ironstone Winery have each grown and become famous in their own way. John, Gail and each of their four children - Stephen, Kurt, Jack, and Joan - remain actively involved in the growth of both the winery facility and the wine brand.
