Winemaker Notes

The 2009 Petite Sirah, Thompson Vineyard – This is a very big wine. In its sixth vintage, this wine maintains incredible darkness, power, and purity of fruit. This wine has more tannin and is higher in acid than previous vintages. It has gobs of cherry-berry-dry and black fruit flavors, spice and licorice aromas, and a stick-to-your-lips quality. Four new American, plus 8 neutral barrels were used.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2009 Petite Sirah Thompson Vineyard is another dazzling wine, but it needs time, perhaps quite a lot. A massive, broad-shouldered frame provides the canvas for super-expressive blueberries, smoke, mint, licorice and blackberry jam. This shows fabulous depth, richness and power, but it would be a shame to open a bottle until the wine settles down. It may take as long as a decade for the tannin to melt away, although I am optimistic the wine will enter its sweet spot before then. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029.

The largest and perhaps most varied of California’s wine-growing regions, the Central Coast produces a good majority of the state's wine. This vast district stretches from San Francisco all the way to Santa Barbara along the coast, and reaches inland nearly all the way to the Central Valley.

Encompassing an extremely diverse array of climates, soil types and wine styles, it contains many smaller sub-AVAs, including San Francisco Bay, Monterey, the Santa Cruz Mountains, Paso Robles, Edna Valley, Santa Ynez Valley and Santa Maria Valley.

While the region could probably support almost any major grape varietiy, it is famous for a few. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel are among the major ones. The Central Coast is home to many of the state's small, artisanal wineries crafting unique, high-quality wines, as well as larger producers also making exceptional wines.

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.
