2017 Petite Sirah | Bevill/Wolcott Vineyard


As the soul of many a zinfandel blend, Petite Sirah’s deep midnight-blue color, sturdy tannins, and ripe plum/blackberry fruit character can satisfy one’s craving for a big, red wine. But it’s a grape that requires a deft touch in winemaking, in order to avoid over-extraction, and a subsequent loss of balance in the finished wine. Rick has honed just such a touch over 25 years of crafting iconic Dry Creek Valley Petite Sirah, and has now crafted 15 vintages from the Bevill/Wolcott Vineyard.  The ideal pairing just might be a grilled rib-eye steak, but  don’t rule out grilled eggplant and zucchini!

True to form, our 2017 Petite Sirah delights with sweet and spicy aromatics, abundant dark fruit flavors, and the structure to develop in the bottle for years to come. Scents of violet, black peppercorn, and vanilla greet you, and are followed by ripe blackberry and dark plum flavors. The finish lingers with a hint of sassafras (i.e., a hint of root beer). The Bevill/Wolcott vineyard is so close to the winery that we can observe it while driving past on Dry Creek Road. This 2017 vintage was harvested on September 7th of that year. This vineyard is very consistent in quality and timing, and the 2022 came in on September 5th!
