Petite Sirah 2016

This estate wine, delivers complex aromas of garrigue and lavender while the bold body is highlighted by bright pomegranate and caramel. A hint of blueberry and dark chocolate on the finish make the mouth water for a tender chateaubriand steak topped with sautéed mushrooms.
Petite Sirah was created by a chance cross pollination of the noble Syrah and ancient Peloursin vines in the nursery of French Rhône botanist Francois Durif. The word petite refers to the berries, which are very small and produce and intensely dark and powerful wine.
