Petite Sirah 2008

Lava Cap’s Granite Hill vineyard has been part of our estate production since 1995. It consistently produces some of the most highly decorated Petite Sirahs in California. The wine has the iron-red soil character, black mineral depth and green conifer edge of the Sierra Foothills. Rich scents of berry, caramel and spice mingle with the fresh blackberry flavor. The tannins are sleek and juicy, wrapped in a plush blanket of French Oak. This wine is a perfect partner with grilled New York steak, braised short ribs, pepper-garlic crusted prime rib, cheese, and game dishes.

Tasting Notes

This deeply pigmented wine contains sumptuous tannins which balance the plump blackberry and caramel sweetness providing the wine with a luscious, festive feel.

We couldn’t find it on the website, probably due to limited production, but go to the site and inquire. This lush wine is no petite size, when it comes to body. We loved it with a dinner of several cheeses and warm country bread with slabs of sweet butter.

If you can’t find it, trust this maker. They are serious!
