Field Stone Petite Sirah Alexander Valley Staten Family Reserve 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

This special reserve wine comes from an estate vineyard planted in 1894 in Alexander Valley. Opens with aromas of violets and spicy crushed boysenberries.This big, bold wine is anything but petite, as it spreads out lavishly on the palate with rich, complex flavors suggestive of black cherries, ripe plums, and tart blueberries. Its finish is long with a bold layer of fruit covering its youthful, dusty tannins. The use of new American oak with this wine accentuates its impressive sweet fruit' character. Includes a small amount of Viognier.

Field Stone Winery was founded in 1977 with its own celebrated estate vineyards dating back to 1894. It is owned and operated by John & Katrina Staten and their family. Praised by visitors for its hospitality and unique rustic beauty, the winery is a fascinating, small, underground facility carved into a picturesque oak knoll in the midst of its rolling vineyards in Sonoma County’s beautiful Alexander Valley. Known primarily for its award-winning Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc and century-old vine Petite Sirah, Field Stone is also recognized for its select, handcrafted quantities of other award-winning, low-production wines: Sangiovese, Syrah, Viognier, Chardonnay, Rosé of Sangiovese and Vintage Port. We have also introduced our new Convivio companion wine, made from our Merlot and Cabernet, from which we donate a portion of the proceeds to Clinica Alianza, a nonprofit medical center serving farmworkers and their families in Sonoma County. Field Stone’s winery and vineyard estate is located conveniently on Highway 128, the key artery linking northern Sonoma County and Napa Valley (the winery is just seven miles from Healdsburg and fourteen miles from Calistoga). Its cozy and inviting underground tasting room is open from 10 to 5 seven days a week. Its picnic ground, under its spreading oaks, has been called “one of the best spots for a picnic with a vineyard view in the Alexander Valley” Read less
