Interesting. I found it to be a very "red" petite sirah and not much in the way of blue and black fruit on the nose. Lighter style. Nice, but lacking some of the characteristics of what I enjoy in this varietal. - Tasted at winery 12/30/10

This juicy red shows bright red berry and blackberry flavors that are balanced by thick, rustic tannins, with spice and cedar details and a touch of smokiness on the finish. Drink now through 2020. 2,600 cases made. -MW Wine Spectator. A Petite Sirah wine from California in USA. 2008 Girard Petite Sirah 750ml

WS 90pts - Winemaker Notes - Our 2008 vintage Petite Sirah is an inky, dark, fruit-forward wine with aromas of Baked cherry pie, ripe plum, marzipan, anise and allspice; on the palate, there s a wonderful balance of integrated, firm tannins and crisp acidity with a soft, spicy and lingering finish. The blend is 89% Petite Sirah, 8% Zinfandel, 2% Mourvedre and 1% Grenache. Total cases produced: 5,200.

Winemaker's Notes:

Inky blue and ruby red in color the aromas offer black cherry blueberry mocha and lilac. Girard's Petite Sirah is full-bodied and its layers and complexity will please all portions of the palate. Extended maceration after primary fermentation provides well-integrated tannins and a silky smooth finish to this massive wine. All of the fruit used to make this wine comes from small clone Petite Sirah which delivers richer concentration and brighter flavors. These century-old vineyards are all in Calistoga where the warmer climate and rich soils provide great depth of character.
