Petite Sirah 2011
Petite Sirah is Rick's emblematic wine: it's dark, brooding, substantial...and at the same time juicy, accessible, and thoroughly balanced. There's not a thing 'petite' about it, though. This 2011 is our fifth vintage from Wolcott Vineyard, which is just a stone's throw south of the winery on the east side bench of Dry Creek Valley, and is managed meticulously by grower Duff Bevill. It is an almost fluorescent black in color, with great blackberry,cranberry and pepper flavors in a substantial frame. As our friend Dave S. exclaims when we pour him some, "There's night in my glass!'. Our classic food-pairing recommendation for this wine is a grilled ribeye steak dusted with black pepper.
