Winemaker Notes

In contrast to the finesse of our Grenache from Palisades Vineyard, this Petite Sirah is all power. Petite Sirah is known for color but this is dark and inky enough that if other petites could blush from being envious, they would. Do NOT drink while wearing white clothes! Enormously concentrated, sumptuous and structured, with an array of brooding dark fruits, freshly turned black earth, licorice, black pepper and rose hip. As massive as this wine is, its tannins are remarkable refined. This wine will outlive all of us

Critical Acclaim

Jeb Dunnuck

The inky blue/black-hued 2017 Petite Sirah Palisades Vineyard Old Vine (mostly Petite Sirah) is a powerhouse of a Petite Sirah that doesn’t pull any punches in its awesome aromas of blue fruits, liquid violets, graphite, and lead pencil. These carry to a full-bodied, deep, massive effort that has a wall of tannins, flawless balance, and a great finish. It's a primordial beast of a wine that's going to require 4-5 years of bottle age, but it's heavenly stuff none the less.

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.
