Food Pairings for Carver-Sutro Petite Sirah Napa Valley Palisades Vineyard
Old vine Petite Sirah enjoys a particular chemistry in Northern California, where it can produce wines of spectacular color, intense fruit, and brawny structure. Carver Sutro optimizes this style. Summer temps can reach up to 110 degrees in this far northern corner of Napa Valley. While most vines date back to the 1960's, some were planted more than 100 years ago. The grapes were fermented 19 days in stainless steel, followed by 2-day post-fermentation maceration. Barrel-aged 19 months in 100% French oak (46% new, 54% older). No fining or filtration. Bottled August 2008. 550 cases produced.
