2016 "mbf" Petite Sirah

If your not familiar with Petite Sirah, there is nothing petite (small) about it.  The grape produces rich, complex and age-worthy wines that are dense in character and color.  Our 2016 Reserve "mbf" Petite Sirah exhibits these qualities.  Produced from the Perotti Vineyard in Dry Creek Valley, this wine exhibits flavors of dark plums, dried herbs, licorice and pepper spice.  That sounds delicious!

The Varietal.  From a small berry comes one big dog! Petite Sirah is an interesting varietal. Descended from a cross between the noble Syrah and the little know Peloursin, Petite Sirah produces a hardy, age-worthy wine dense in character and color.  Our 2016 Petite Sirah is from Alexander Valley, where warmer temperatures allow the grapes to fully ripen and develop beautiful black fruit flavors.

The Vineyard.  In 2005 I talked to Ed and Bruce Perotti, father and son grape growers in Dry Creek Valley, about getting some “pets,” their name for the Petite Sirah grape. What a perfect nickname. But even more perfect is the suitability of this vineyard and these blocks for producing a great “pet”— located on the north end of Dry Creek Valley, on a bench with an eastern slope. This location ensures great air circulation and exposure, dry skins and ripe fruit.

 

Wine Profile
Food Pairing Notes
BBQ Ribs are the perfect match for our Petite Sirah. Petite Sirah's ample tannins need to be balanced by natural fattiness or sweetness in its food pairing. Thus, slow cooked pork ribs slathered in a wonderfully sweet yet sassy sauce.
