2013 Vasco Urbano Wine Co. "Brunswick" Livermore Valley Petite Sirah Top Pick!
2013 Vasco Urbano Wine Co. "Brunswick" Livermore Valley Petite Sirah

From the winery: "Rich and dense, the 2013 Brunswick Petite Sirah is a beautiful expression of a world class vineyard. Aromatics of fresh black cherries, blueberry cobbler, and dark chocolate, the wine hits the palate with a rush of accompanying flavors. The wine crosses the mid palate and fills the mouth with balanced acid and tannins to match the wines' density. Enjoy with grilled anything, or on a cool autumn evening on the patio. Pack a toothbrush!"

2013 Ridge "Lytton Estate" Dry Creek Valley Petite Sirah New!
2013 Ridge "Lytton Estate" Dry Creek Valley Petite Sirah

93 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2013 Petite Sirah Lytton Estate is oddly enough quite civilized and even a touch tame by Petite standards. There is plenty of inky blue/black-fleshed fruit but the tannins are surprisingly soft. Game, smoke and a hint of tobacco add nuance through the mid-palate and finish. The 2013 is a beautiful wine, but readers expecting a full-on Petite experience might be slightly disappointed, as this is an especially tamed Petite with varietal character that has largely been subdued.

2013 Jaffurs "Thompson Vineyard" Santa Barbara County Petite Sirah

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Petite Sirah looks to be another killer vintage of this cuvee. First made in 2003, this 2013 offers an inky purple color to go with deep, decadent dark fruits, full-bodied richness and depth, and plenty of fine tannin. It’s a beauty to drink over the coming decade or so. Making their wine in the town of Santa Barbara, Craig Jaffurs and David Yates continue to make a bevy of outstanding wines, all of which remain reasonably priced. Both their 2011s and 2012s are made in a fresher, lighter-weight style that highlights purity and finesse over ric ...Read More »

2013 Sean Thackrey "Sirius Eaglepoint Ranch" Mendocino County Petite Sirah

Bolinas-based Sean Thackrey has made a Petite Sirah from the Eaglepoint Ranch since 1997, and are we glad he has! This is a wine to put away in your cellar (or closet) for however long you can stand it! When you do get around to opening it, watch it explode from the glass and change over the hour or two it takes for you two drink the bottle, offering such an array of aromas and flavors it is impossible to catalog them here. Sean Thackrey is one of the most influential people in the Bay Area Food & Wine community, and has been for nearly three decades. Al... Read More »

2012 Le P'tit Paysan Monterey County Petite Sirah

The San Antonio Valley is in remote southwestern Monterey County, on the leeward side of the Ventana Range. 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. Block 3 is a southeast facing slope where decomposed granite dominates the soils. 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. Fr... Read More »

2007 Sean Thackrey "Sirius Eaglepoint Ranch" Mendocino Petite Sirah

Finding information to share about Sean Thackrey's wines is about as challenging as locating Thackrey's Bolinas property, which is located an hour north of San Francisco in western Marin County. Thackrey's rustic winery-in-a-eucalyptus grove is only accessible via a twisting road that ends at the Pacific's edge, according to the Wine Spectator. The highly-allocated results are made in Thackrey's distinctive style: powerful and intense with rugged tannins using methods culled from ancient texts, mostly translated (Thackrey reads seven languages).

2011 Stags' Leap Winery Napa Valley Petite Sirah

91 points Wine & Spirits: "This wine’s dark plum flavor is completely dry, with savory herb notes in the background. It’s reduced when first poured, needing hours in a decanter or several years in the cellar to come around. With air, the juiciness of the fruit comes to the fore, a sleek Napa red with rich balsamic notes and earthy, plum-skin tannins. Age it to serve with slow-braised short ribs."

1998 Behrens & Hitchcock 'Barcini Vineyard' Napa Valley Petite Sirah

Often extremely tannic and tough when young, the Petite from Barcini is in the running for the longest lived P.S. made! Parker gave the 1999 Barcini 89-91 points and this review: "The wine is a dense purple color, with notes of earth, smoke, licorice, and black fruits. Quite sweet on the attack, full-bodied, with rustic tannin in the finish, this wine will require 5-6 years of cellaring and keep for up to two decades."

2010 Retro Cellars Howell Mountain Petite Sirah

91 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2010 Petite Syrah is a dark, brooding beauty. Black cherries, plums, licorice, new leather and menthol. Time in bottle has softened some of the contours, something that Petite can always benefit from. The 2010 was made from Randy Dunn's Park Muscatine Vineyard, the source of Dunn's own 1990s Petite. Mike and Kara Dunn brought in their fruit in November and gave the wine 30 months in barrel. Dollops of Zinfandel, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon round out this distinctive Howell Mountain Petite Sirah. The 2010 is quite a bit more expressive than it was la ...Read More »

Some of the extraordinary Petite Syrah produced by La Jota from the old Park-Muscatine Vineyard on Howell Mountain, and the now-discontinued Ridge Petite Syrahs from the Devil's Hill portion of York Creek Vineyard were previous benchmarks, but Turley Cellars' Petite Syrahs have set a new reference point for this varietal.

Made from 55-year old vines that yielded only 9.8 tons of fruit for five acres, this opaque black-colored wine is the biggest, richest, most concentrated, tannic wine I have ever tasted.

"Sirius" is right, as in, this is some SERIOUSLY GOOD Petite Sirah. Sourced from the Eaglepoint Ranch in Mendocino, the 2009 "Sirius" Petite Sirah from this eccentric Bolinas winemaker offers an intense nose of red and black cherry, along with hints of sage, oregano, and explosion of exotic herbs and spices. It is concentrated and full-bodied, but maintains a fine tension between richness, acidity, and tannic power.

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.

There is a "cult" surrounding Sean Thackrey's wines, and it's not the kind of cult wine that's advertised with a big sign on Highway 29 in the middle of the Napa Valley; nor do Thackrey's distinctive, allocated wines fetch unreal sums per bottle.

Typically full-bodied and ripe in the Thackrey style, it's a must-have for PS lovers and for anyone interested in surveying the eccentric, outlier winemakers of California.

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Petite Sirah Rattlesnake Ridge offers huge tannins, a dense ruby/purple color, a monster attack, but an excruciatingly tannic finish. This wine is loaded but needs at least 5-8 years of bottle age and should keep for 25+ years." (12/2007) Wine Spectator: "An extremely peppery style, with bright, fragrant berry and plum flavors that have an air of elegance, yet also powerful tannins for support. (Web-2008)" K&L Notes: Turley Wine Cellars makes thirty-four wines, the vast majority of which are single vineyard designate Zinfandels and Petite Syrahs. By focusing on old vine vineya...

2002 Turley "Estate" Napa Valley Petite Syrah

92-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There are 250 cases of the 2002 Petite Syrah Estate (14% alcohol). Made from cuttings taken from the Hayne Vineyard, this fabulous effort is one of the finest examples of this varietal I have recently tasted.

2005 Robert Foley Napa Valley Petite Sirah

91 points Wine Spectator: "Sturdy and solid, with wild berry, cherry, spice and floral notes that explode into more layers of tobacco, cedar, licorice and black tea flavors midpalate. Dense tannins give this good structure. (JL)" (3/2008)

1996 Turley "Aida" Napa Valley Petite Syrah

92-93 points Robert Parker: "Turley continues to offer two of the blackest, densest, richest Petite Syrahs ever produced in California. Alongside its siblings, the 1996 Petite Syrah Aida Vineyard looks like a wimp with only 13.8% alcohol, but what concentration and intensity this wine offers. From a 4.5-acre vineyard, only 3 tons of fruit were harvested in 1996. The result is an opaque purple-colored wine with a dense, mineral, earthy, peppery, blackberry-scented nose, huge, ripe, thick flavors, gobs of glycerin and fruit, and a long, moderately tannic f...
