Vina Robles Petite Sirah Jardine


The grapes for this vintage were hand picked and sorted for quality in the vineyard. The fruit was fermented in small stainless steel tanks and bins. Over three days the must was allowed to “cold soak” to extract color and flavor prior to the start of fermentation. Pumpovers and punch-downs took place frequently over a ten-day period before the juice was pressed off and transferred to French oak barrels (45 percent new) to complete malolactic fermentation. The final blend was chosen as a result of frequent tasting sessions. The Jardine Petite Sirah contributes dense, dark fruit with great tannin structure. The Penman Springs adds dark color, fresh berry aromas and spicy characteristics. Creston Valley Vineyard adds touches of minerality. Together, they create a wine displaying complexity, structure and balance.

    Why do you make me scroll through 25 pages to see this list of 25 wines? Just to boost your Google ranking, I assume. I think that you expect unlimited patience from your visitors, which may not be accurate.

  • It took me a while to figure this out, too: there is a "view as one page" button you can select on the home page. Look to the left, just below the text box.

    We are familiar with several of these, however, it would have been nice if the countries had been listed as well!

    Hi its a nice step to rank the wines but first let the list be in a single page, and if people are interested let them click on each wine and know further.
    Making us to click and wait for so much of time to see the ranking is little harsh

  • I agree - I don't like having to scroll through several pages I don't want to read in order to see a listing! don't know how to get to "view as one page" button.

    Having a RS for both white and red wines would be nice, particularly whites. I don't drink any whites but dessert wines and some rieslings, where a RS is particularly of importance.
    thanks

    I can't believe that none of my picks made the list. Either I am too far to the right or too far to the left. I guess I have to do some serious soul searching.

  • This list is not the result of everyone voting for their favorite wine. Willamette Valley Vineyards won simply because they made their 200 employees (and spouses) vote weekly for their wines. Most Oregonians agree, Willamette Valley Vineyards is not even close to the best Pinot Noir in Oregon.

  • I agree with Joe. This list is not the result of everyone voting for their favorite wine. Here's some inside info, Willamette Valley Vineyards won simply because they made their 200 employees (and spouses) vote weekly for their wines.

    Seghesio wines (particularly the Zins) get much better with an extra 2-3 years of age. The different zins are rather different (they make about 10 different ones, and periodically they seem to disclose a new zin from a different vineyard).
