Petite Sirah 2012
DNA science has recently been applied to grape varieties, identifying Petite Sirah as a cross between French Syrah (Shiraz in Australia) and the obscure Pelorsin. Created in the 1880’s by Plant Biologist Dr. Durif – the grape is known as Durif in France and came to California with immigrants at the turn of the century. Susceptible to rot due to its tightly packed clusters, it is notoriously difficult to grow, dipping to 2,000 acres in the early 90’s. Winemakers have led the come back as this is the heartiest of wines; rich, dark, chewy, fruity and tannic.
