Ancient Peaks Petite Sirah Paso Robles 2009

Member Review by EMark:

Very dark color--more purple than red. Spicy nose--some anise. Big berry blast on the tip of the tongue. As it spreads over the palate, the berry fruit diminishes and the spicy/herbal thing happens--again, some anise, some pepper. Nice firm non-intrusive tannin. Some acid. Good wine. US$35.00 at the winery in Santa Margarita in December.

It is family-owned winery specializing in estate-grown wines from Margarita Vineyard, the southernmost vineyard in the Paso Robles appellation on California’s Central Coast. There, amid the rugged Santa Lucia mountain range just 14 miles from the Pacific Ocean, Margarita Vineyard stands alone as the only vineyard in its vicinity, and thus the only vineyard to benefit from the extraordinary growing conditions of the area. Margarita Vineyard resides in the historic Santa Margarita Ranch, which was first planted to vines by Franciscan missionaries in 1774. Ancient Peaks and Margarita Vineyard are owned by three longtime local winegrowing families—the Filipponis, Rossis and Wittstroms—who are actively involved in the daily operations of the vineyard and winery. Ancient Peaks wines are crafted under the guidance of Mike Sinor, a local winemaking veteran and one of the highest-rated winemakers on the Central Coast. Read less
