Peirano Estate Vineyards Petite Sirah the Heritage Collection 2008
To maximize the extraction of the big and bold flavors of Petite Sirah, we use rotary fermentation, which constantly mixes the skins and pulp with the juice so we can get every bit of flavor out of this variety. After malolactic fermentation is complete, the wine is transferred to French oak barrels for 12 months, which allows the wine to settle as well as slightly concentrate its fruit flavors, as well as round out with touches of oak.
Nestled between the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta and the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, Lodi has an ideal Mediterranean climate with deep, rich, sandy-loam soils and abundant quality water. Lance Randolph, fourth generation Peirano, winemaker, and grower uses the best of Giacomo Peirano’s, Lance’s great grandfather, farming methods and implements new techniques to create the best of “Old World Meets New World” viticulture practices.
Food Pairings for Peirano Estate Vineyards Petite Sirah the Heritage Collection
The senses are tempted by an array of black raspberry, spice, coffee, cocoa, cola and white pepper. The palate is filled with ripe boysenberry, black raspberry, plum and sweet black cherry and firm tannins, with a hint of smoke and dark chocolate. Enjoy this wine along with a nice grilled steak, baked potato with all the fixings, and good friends. This is a wine that can please now, as well as age out for many years to come.
