Winemaker Notes

The 2009 vintage Petite Sirah is an inky, dark, fruit-forward wine with aromas of baked black cherry tart, dark plum, Tahitian vanilla bean, anise and allspice; on the palate, there's a balance of integrated, firm tannins and bright acidity with a soft, spicy and lingering finish.

Blend: 98% Petite Sirah, 2% Zinfandel

Tasting Panel

What a mellow-toned P.S.! Possibly the mature vines (some over 100 years) from the Godward Vineyard. The pleasurable baked goods - think blackberry tart and the juiciest plums - enjoy interaction with vanilla spice.

Girard
Thirty years after first planting its vineyards, Girard continues to produce wine reflecting the quality that has made Napa Valley the most famous New World wine growing region in the world. Napa’s rise to fame was punctuated by a renaissance that began at the same time Girard was setting down its own roots.

Responsible for the vast majority of American wine production, if California were a country, it would be the world’s fourth largest wine-producing nation. The state’s diverse terrain and microclimates allow for an incredibly wide-ranging selection of wine styles, and unlike tradition-bound Europe, experimentation is more than welcome here. Wineries range from boutique to massive corporations, and price and quality are equally varied—plenty of inexpensive bulk wine is made in the Central Coast area, while Napa is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious and expensive “cult” wines.

Just about every style of wine you can imagine is made in California, from bone dry to unctuously sweet, still to sparkling, light and fresh to rich and full-bodied. Each AVA and sub-AVA has its own distinct personality. In the Napa Valley, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and other Bordeaux varieties dominate, as well as Sauvignon Blanc. Sonoma County is best known for Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Zinfandel. The Central Coast has carved out a niche with Rhône blends based on Grenache and Syrah, while Mendocino has found success with Alsatian varieties such as Riesling and Gewürztraminer. With all the diversity that California has to offer, it is certain that any wine lover will find something to get excited about.
