This Petite Sirah is dark, powerfully flavored, and intense. The flavors of blueberry, black currant, and dark plum tones explode and then resonate in your mouth. This wine luxuriated for 48 months in 100% French oak, allowing the perfect amount of time in barrel to fully integrate with the complex flavorings of the French oak. We then moved the wine to neutral oak barrels to finish the gentle aging process.
One moment, there’s dark chocolate enticing your senses, then some exotic spice moves in and dances on your tongue. As the name Pizzicato denotes, this wine has lots of “pluck” – so you better be ready for some serious wine. In matching with food, big flavors only need apply!
The Blend: 3% 2012 Zinfandel was added in the final blend to soften the edges. 97% Petite Sirah and 3% Zinfandel. Limited-production.
