David Fulton Winery Estate Bottled Petite Sirah St. Helena Napa Valley 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Grown from the oldest Petite Sirah vines in Napa Valley (and possibly California), David Fulton's bottling is an example of the heights this varietal can reach. Inky black in color, its fresh, massive, pure black fruit aromas explode from the glass; flavors of cassis, licorice, and well-integrated oak. The texture is a multilayered coating of round and supple black cherry. At the end of each sip follow rich and mature tannins. The wine allows for current consumption for those who can't wait yet graceful aging for those who prefer patience.

A small historic winery of the Napa Valley and vineyard of antiquity, the name David Fulton literally stands for ultra premium, estate bottled Petite Sirah. Consistent for rich smooth flavors, our wines have repeatedly received accolades from noted experts in the field. In 2009, the Fulton family will be pleased to announce the first release of a late harvest, port-like Petite Sirah wine. In 2010 we will celebrate our 150th anniversary. Coinciding with the celebration we will release a limited number of vertical sets of wines that extend back to our 1999 Vintage. With regard to the winery, we are located just a short walk to the east from downtown St. Helena. Ours is a recently restored winery tucked beneath three large valley oaks (Quercus lobata). A replica of the old Fulton stone wine cellar, the three story building sits at the northwest edge of the family vineyard. A few yards to the west are two large sentinel palm trees, a restored tank house and David Fulton's original, historic farmhouse. The 14.5 acre vineyard itself stretches south from this point as if to run away from Mount St. Helena, a vast silhouette looming to the north and reminding us of its once violent volcanic nature. This romantic setting of old head trained vines enjoys early morning fog, warm afternoons and cool night air of the northern Napa Valley as well as the rich igneous alluvial soil of the local appellation.
