Field Stone "Staten Family Reserve Pitite Sirah" 2006
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.
Editorial Reviews for Field Stone "Staten Family Reserve Pitite Sirah"
Smells a bit stony then deeply earthy with a bit of sweet oak tempered by a dried rose petal notes, some red licorice tones and a bit of café au lait. Lovely deep blackberry, boysenberry fruit here with a touch of vanilla and bay leaf that adds a hint of bubblegum quality. Juicy and fruit driven entry with crisp fresh black raspberry fruit and a hint of black currant, lovely acidity is mouthwatering and well balanced by fleshy ripe yet integrated tannins. There is a minerally richness to this wine that sets it apart as well and the finish is long and complex with a candied red cherry finale. A smaller scaled wine but seamless with finesse, purity and downright elegant for Petite Sirah. 92pts
