95% Petite Sirah, 5% Sirah
Wine Enthusiast "Top 100 Best Buys of 2016" (#18)
The Kautz Family grows these Petite Sirah grapes at their Teichert Ranch vineyard in the Sloughouse sub-appellation of the Lodi AVA. These soils contain large stones throughout, however, are well-drained and ideal for growing world-class winegrapes.
Our 2014 Petite Sirah is a must try for lovers of bold & flavorful reds. Succulent & rich, its deep purple color leads way to bold aromas of warm berry pie and loads of blueberry mixed with vanilla and a light pepper spice. Full flavors of lush berries mixed with dark chocolate, warm cedar, and vanilla give way to a delightfully smooth finish with moderate tannins.
Food Pairing Notes
Our Petite Sirah is a perfect companion with dishes like veal saltimbocca or braised beef with winter vegetables. Any dish with mushrooms is sure to be a palate pleaser.
