2014 Ridge "Lytton Estate" Dry Creek Valley Petite Sirah

95 points Vinous: "The 2014 Petite Sirah Lytton Estate is outstanding. Deep, luscious and intense, but with none of the aggressiveness Petite so often presents, the 2014 is utterly captivating from the very first taste. Dark red and blue-hued stone fruits, mint, spices and licorice are front and center. The purity of the fruit here is simply remarkable. As hard as it may be to believe, the 2014 can be enjoyed on the young side. This is a tremendous wine. Don't miss it! This is an absolutely stellar set of wines from Ridge. (AG)" (6/2016)

2014 J. Runquist "Salman Vineyard" Clarksburg Petite Sirah

Jeff Runquist banked 19 years making wine in California before opening his own winery.

This Salman Vineyard bottling hails from the Clarksburg AVA on the delta of the Sacramento River where it benefits from cool breezes from the San Francisco Bay. Although there are many quality vine plantings in Clarksburg, grapes are almost alwa... Read More »

2014 Halcón "Tierra" Yorkville Highlands Petite Sirah

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A 100% varietal wine, the 2014 Petite Sirah Tierra comes from the Theopolis vineyard in the Yorkville Highlands (this was previously used by Carlisle and is close to Paul's Halcon site) and was aged in 25% new French oak. It sports a deep ruby/purple color as well as terrific notes of black and blue fruits, tobacco leaf, licorice and chalky minerality. Rich, textured and full-bodied, with beautiful purity of fruit, it has enough texture and richness to shine even today, but I suspect it will evolve for 10-15 years. I continue to love these wines from Pau ...Read More »

2012 T-Vine Napa Valley Petite Sirah

In the northern Napa Valley area of Calistoga, T-Vine Cellars sources fruit from old vineyards and longtime growers--only growers whose names end in a vowel, they joke. For this Petite Sirah, T-Vine sourced from two vineyards: the legendary Nichelini family's vineyards of Chiles Valley and Calistoga's Fredianis. "You’ll need to break out the white strips after a glass of this wine," according to the winery. "Dark berry notes, black currant, smoke, thyme, vanilla.

2013 Le P'tit Paysan Monterey County Petite Sirah

From the winery: "Picked at atypically low sugars for the variety. Fermented in small lots with some stem inclusion and some native yeasts. Aged on lees in less than 10% new oak. From a limestone and shale rich block on Pierce Ranch in southern Monterey County. We pick Petite Sirah from two blocks in the Y-Ranch section of the Pierce Vineyard. Block 1 is a west facing rocky hillside littered with chunks of white limestone, which at times are as large as two fists. "

2013 Joseph Swan "Bastoni Vineyard" Russian River Valley Petite Sirah

From the producer: "This wine is as dark as our tannat, which is saying a lot! Deep, deep red. Although the nose is not fully developed as of yet, it is about black plum and, even though it was aged in neutral French oak barrels, a hint of wood. In the mouth it’s power is obvious but at the same time it exhibits balance and even a bit of elegance. Sort of like a middle linebacker doing ballet. It is a bit juicy but with a tannic edge and great acidity. Knowing what I do about how many petite sirahs tend to age, we plan to put several cases in the librar... Read More »

This wine spent 16 months in 100% new French oak prior to being bottled. It is a powerhouse at 15.5% natural alcohol.

Shows a classically thick, full-bodied texture, with dark currant, plum and licorice flavors edged with baker's chocolate. Fully dry, it's marvelous now with tri-tip, and should age for many years."

Tremendously rich, full-bodied, and viscous, with 13.2% alcohol, sweet tannin, and well-integrated wood, this profound Petite Syrah will be at its finest between 2008-2020+.

This is another big, meaty wine, with lots of white flowers, blackberry and cassis, a huge, chewy mouthfeel, and some pepper, smoke and barbecue notes.

It is a massive, almost uncivilized, wildly out of control Petite Syrah that will require 10-15 years of cellaring, and last for 30 or more.
