    Winemaker's Notes:

    Aromatics unfold with olives, anise, coffee, thyme and dark fruits. On the palate the wine showcases a rich mouthfeel of bittersweet chocolate, espresso, blackberry cobbler, dusty cinnamon and mocha. The finish evolves with bright acidity and inky tannins that integrate with intense savory fruit.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Girard's 2010 Petite Sirah is an absolutely beautiful bottle of wine. Sweet black currants, spices, violets, asphalt and grilled herbs all take shape in this mid-weight, yet luscious red. This is a decidedly refined, plush Petite Syrah with lovely balance, but little of the weight or firmness usually associated with the grape, which can be good or bad, depending on one's point of view. The wine's balance, however, is beyond reproach. This is a great showing from Girard. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025.

    Vinous / Antonio Galloni

    Girard's recent Petite Sirahs have been great, really defining a Napa approach to the variety, and their 2010 is right up there. It's fairly high in alcohol, but there's not race of overripeness. You’ll find delicious blackberry jam, black currant, grilled bacon and black pepper flavors that finish dry, spicy, and above all, satisfying.

    Espresso notes highlight the intense, robust wild blackberry and blueberry flavors laced by floral, tea and spicy highlights. Nicely dense, with the thick tannins never getting in the way of the wine's focus and fresh fruit core.
