WA 90pts. - Winemaker Notes - Our 2007 Petite Sirah is sourced from our ranch and vineyards in Alexander Valley. The wine shows an excellent integration of fruit, richness, and heft while maintaning great balance and structure. Rated 90+
According to the Wine Advocate: Petite Sirah is often the most underrated varietal in California, but all you have to do is look at the tasting notes of people who've opened 15 and 20-year-old examples, which are usually super-enthusiastic. A classic anti-oxidative style of wine, the 2007 Petite Sirah from Marietta displays blackberry, incense, camphor, and floral-infused blueberry notes. It has very sweet tannins for a Petite Sirah and a rich, full-throttle, petal-to-the-metal mouthfeel. There’s not a hard edge, but the wine is intense, rich, and capable of lasting 15 or more years. It is another great buy from this value-packed portfolio.
