About Petite Sirah Red Wine
Petite Sirah, which is also spelled as Petite Syrah (or even Petit Sirah) is a California red wine with deep color, rich tannins and a good deal of spice. While a few medium and larger-sized producers in California make Petite Sirah, most examples are from smaller artisan producers. These vintners often emphasize the chocolate and plum flavors as well as the chewy tannins.
