2010 Vina Robles Paso Robles Petite Sirah

SKU #1145187 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Always a solid bottle of wine, the 2010 Petite Sirah is deeply fruited and layered, with plenty of black currant, tar, roasted meats, truffle and spice on the nose. This flows to seamless, medium-bodied, concentrated wine that should evolve gracefully for over a decade. Drink now-2020.  (8/ 2013)

Wine Enthusiast

 Similar in every respect to the ’09 vintage, a softly ripe wine that’s drinkable now despite Petite Sirah’s firm tannins. It’s very delicious, showing candied blackberries, cherries, currants and chocolate.  (6/ 2013)

There is NOTHING petite about this Petite Sirah! It's got big brambly red and black fruits. Ripe plums, dried rose petal, and big purple violet florals. It's dense and weighty on the palate and layered with more big fruits and chocolate aromas. Looking for a big wine tonight? Then try this Petite Sirah!

True to form, this Petite Sirah is dense and dark fruited. Notes of cocoa and roast meat give this wine added complexity. The ripe tannins on the back end lead to a pleasant softness which balance an otherwise spicy finish.

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Petite Sirah

- Once thought to be related to the Rhône's Syrah, it ends up that Petite Sirah is more closely related to the Southern French varietal Durif, which is virtually extinct in France. On the other hand, Petite Sirah thrives in California, where it is prized for its ink-dark color, rich, peppery, black-fruited tannic wine and ability to age. There is even a group passionately devoted to the varietal called PS I Love You. While often bottled varietally, Petite Sirah is also frequently blended with Zinfandel to give that wine structure, and is usually among the varietals planted in the old vine field blends of Northern California. The grape is also grown with some success is South America - Brazil and Argentina, in particular - and in Mexico.
Country:

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.

Sub-Region:

California

- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.

Specific Appellation:

Paso Robles

- Located about halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles, this inland AVA enjoys a sunny and hot growing period while its seaside neighbors hang in the fog. Zinfandel is the traditional red grape of choice, though cabernet, chardonnay, and Rhône varietals are gaining favor. Most are made in a fruit-forward, early drinking style.
