    Winemaker's Notes:

    Our 2007 vintage Petite Sirah is an inky, dark, fruit-forward wine with aromas of kirsch, blackberry, smoked game meat, dried violets and vanilla bean; on the palate, there's a wonderful balance of integrated, firm tannins and crisp acidity with a soft, spicy and lingering finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This is a big, potent, Incredible Hunk of a wine. It’s gigantic in wild, exotic blackberry, blueberry, mulberry, pomegranate, licorice, pepper and dark chocolate flavors, wrapped into firm tannins. Continues a near-perfect streak of ageworthy, dry Petite Sirahs from Girard.

    A significant portion of this wine comes from the Godward Vineyard north of Calistoga, where the oldest petite sirah vines are nearing 100 years of age, including a block of mixed blacks. Right now, it's all primary fruit-blunt blueberry and wild, spicy purple fruit flavors. What predicts its potential, however, is the freshness and balance of that fruit, held by a firm structure even if the detail is not yet articulated in the wine. Give this ten years in the cellar and it should grow into a beauty.
