  The Schatz family has been growing grapes in the Lodi Appellation since the 1950's.  They purchased a special vineyard where the winery is now located which is lined by a historic railroad spur where three packing shed were once located.  In the early 1900’s these packing sheds were common stops for locomotives to load the famous Lodi grapes and ship them to wineries and home winemakers throughout the nation.  Thus, the label Peltier Station emerged in honor of the local history and abounding railroads that helped build California. Passion for growing grapes evolved into passion for creating great wines and many were crafted from the twelve varietals that are grown in their vineyards. The family’s Italian heritage also brought two unique wines that we share, Teroldego and Vermentino.     Farming “green” has always been a part of the Schatz mission and all of their vineyards are a part of the “Lodi Rules for Sustainable Wine Growing Program.”  This is a third party certification program that was created by scientists, academics and vintners and known to be the most recognized in the industry covering all facets of land stewardship.  Our mission is to produce outstanding wines by nurturing our vineyards in bringing forth the unique essence and full expression of the vines thus creating wines to enjoy from our place to yours.  Read less

A Gold Medal Wine Club Gold Series Selection. The award-winning Peltier Station 2005 Petite Sirah was nurtured in a very special vineyard in the Elk Grove area located along the northern boundary of the reputable Lodi AVA. Blanketed by the cooling Sacramento River Delta breeze, the vineyard benefits from a longer growing season resulting in more intense flavors apparent in the finished wine. The first release from Peltier Station, the 2005 Petite Sirah earned outstanding recognition at the California State Fair garnering 94 Points, Best of Class, Best of Region, and a Gold Medal! Deep ruby in color, this Petite Sirah offers aromas filled with wild berries and notes of cedar and lilac that lead into a full structure of caramel, pepper and earth. The full middle body gives way to a long lasting, smooth finish that only leaves you wanting more. Also the recipient of a Distinguished Gold Medal from the Lodi International Wine Awards, the robust Peltier Station 2005 Petite Sirah can be paired with a wide array of cuisines including New York steaks, pork roasts, and even dark chocolate. Aged 24 months in oak. 100% Petite Sirah. Enjoy now until 2015.

Nose of bluberry and cherry with a hint of something flowery with some mineral. On the palate, sweetness and mouth-drying tannins, with big blueberry flavors and a hint of vanilla and mineral. Very smooth, but a very dry finish that needs food or a glass of water. This is a pretty big wine, typical of Petite Sirah (in my experience). Excellent - 88 points.

Among the best specimens of this varietal I've had the pleasure of trying! Being unfined and unfiltered, the intensity of this wines big bold flavors intensify with every sip. Tons of berries, and fruit blended with hits of dryness accentuate the drama o f this wine when paired with big spicy dishes. It will drink well now, but will cellar for many years and refine into a greater wine as well!

Sound petite syrah. Light floral and spice nose. Vanilla and pepper and berry linger nicely on the palate. Good food wine as it is less fruity than most p.syrahs.

Glad I found this wine and this varietal. My palate isn't as refined as I like yet; I'm still learning what it is to "taste" wine as well as enjoy it. Hopefully my descriptions will become more thoughtful and fleshed-out as time goes by.

94 points; Best of Class; Best of Region (California State Fair - 2006). This wine has a dark and magenta / purple appearance. Hints of lilac are on the nose with a general pallet of caramel, pepper, and earth. The Petite Sirah has moderate astringency and a long lasting smooth finish. Open a bottle and wait for approximately 10 minutes before the first pour to aerate properly. Pair with a sweet honey mustard salad to showcase the spice, where a sirloin steak cooked to perfection will exhibit the fruitiness.



The next vintage of the award winning wine from well-known winemaker, JC van Staden. For 2006, this wine features an aroma of wild berries, caramel, pepper and earth. It has a full middle body and finishes with you asking for more.
