Black violet color. Aromas and flavors of honey, coconut gelato, white flowers, pickled plums, and vanilla custard with a lightly tannic, vibrant, fruity full body and a warming, interesting, medium-long finish with light oak flavor. A juicy, jammy modern Petite Sirah that satisfies on its own or will make a fun accompaniment to lamb; Zin lovers need apply!

Petite Sirah

Serve in a Zinfandel Wine Glass
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.

As these wines are rugged in nature, these often need a few years after release before they are in ideal drinking condition; five to seven years is generally an ideal time frame for best consumption. Pair Petite Sirah with such foods as grilled lamb, pork roasts, stews and game.
