Winemaker Notes

Our 2007 Petite Sirah has such a deep, inky core that its legs stain the glass purple. Aromas of sweet black fruits, anise and vanilla are alluring and pronounced. The palate is balanced, mouthfilling and intense. Flavors of pomegranate, black cherry, boysenberry, blackberry, smoky oak, and sweet espresso crema, are complimented by a long finish accompanied by hints of anise, spice, and dark chocolate. The tannins are fine grained and well integrated. Our Petite Sirah... View More

Critical Acclaim

WE 94
Wine Enthusiast

Freshly picked blackberries that got ripe under the hot summer sun. Lots of ground black peppercorn dust. Black currant liqueur, black licorice and even a smattering of pancetta. These are the flavors of this delicious, complex Petite Sirah. It shows the big, firm tannins the variety is famous for, but they’re exceptionally ripe and fine. Absolutely first-class, one of the best Petite Sirahs of the vintage, and it’s not surprising that it comes from Napa Valley.

RP 90
The Wine Advocate

The 2007 Petite Sirah is typical of that varietal. Inky blue/purple, with plenty of incense, blueberry, blackberry, espresso, and almost scorched earth, the wine is super-rich, impressively textured, and very full-bodied, with high but sweet tannin. This wine should drink nicely for 20 years.

With the potential to produce some of the finest white wines in the world...

With the potential to produce some of the finest white wines in the world, Germany is one of the world’s most misunderstood winegrowing countries. Many wine consumers of a certain age will recall with amusement and a twinge of horror the sugar-laden Liebfraumilch of their formative drinking years, and surely these bulk-produced, saccharine bottles can still be found. But today Germany is building its reputation upon fine wines at all points of the spectrum from sweet to dry, the best of which can age for many decades. The world’s northernmost region for quality wine production, Germany faces some unique viticultural challenges due to its extreme marginal climate. Fortunately for the lover of German wine, because these wines are still a bit under the radar, they tend to remain surprisingly affordable—for now.

Germany is best known for white wines, particularly Riesling, which is cold-hardy enough to survive very chilly winters, and has enough natural acidity to create balanced wines even at the highest levels of residual sugar. These are classified by ripeness, and can be picked early for dry wines with searing acidity, or as late as January following the harvest for lusciously sweet ice wines. Other important white varieties include fairly neutral workhorse Müller-Thurgau as well as Grauburguner (Pinot Gris) and Weissburguner ([Pinot Blanc]). Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir) grown in warmer pockets of the country is, at its best, elegant and structured enough to rival red Burgundy.
