Food Pairings for Pedroncelli Petite Sirah Dry Creek Valley
Harvested the third week of September, the grapes were brought in at full maturity. The fruit was crushed into stainless steel tanks where frequent pumping-over of the juice during fermentation allowed the young wine a substantial increase in flavor. The color extraction in this wine turns it a very deep purple color. The wine was aged for sixteen months in American oak barrels, 25% new oak with a complement of seasoned barrels. This blending of barrels helps to bring the fruit forward while supporting it with subtle oak complexity.
Opaque purple. Crushed raspberries and bramble spice aromas. Rich and juicy with ripe blackberry, pepper and chocolate flavors. Very deep and complex, this wine should be opened and decanted if enjoyed before 2010. Expect this wine to take on complexities for the next 8-12 years. This wine will age well for at least 15 years--it has the structure to develop nicely.
