Quivira Petite Sirah Dry Creek Valley Wine Creek Ranch 2007

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Stemmy and herbal on the nose with a complex bed of sandy soil tone, pressed flowers, ash, and clear cracked black pepper. Silky on entry with fine balance that makes this rather large scaled wines almost elegant. It's got real transparency in the mouth with nicely spicy wild cherry fruit up front that gains a slightly muddy, earthy tone on the backend and on to the blue fruited finish. Really nicely done. 91pts

Quivira is committed to making the finest wines that showcase the unique terrior of Dry Creek Valley. Quivira specializes in small-lot wines from varietals specifically matched to the soils, seasonal strength of sun, and coastal influenced nights that accentuate the unique characteristics that flow from the vine directly to the wine. The quality of our wines is an honest reflection of our commitment to this land, Biodynamic agriculture and our dedication to artisan winemaking. Quivira has been a Demeter-certified Biodynamic and organic winery since 2005 and is guided by a deeply-held principle of careful stewardship of the land and all its creatures. Environmentally conscious winegrowing and winemaking is a way of life at Quivira and the difference can be seen at the estate and tasted in the wines. The Quivira estate comprises four distinct vineyards within the Dry Creek Valley appellation in Sonoma County with a total of 93 acres of vines. In addition to Zinfandel and Sauvignon Blanc, Quivira grows several Rhone varieties such as Syrah, Grenache and Mourvedre. Winemaker Hugh Chappelle works closely with Quivira's vineyard crew to capture the truest expression of each varietal from Quivira's vineyards. Tasting Room Hours Open daily 11:00am to 5:00pm, except major holidays. Read less

I don't smell much other than alcohol. Very sweet and fruity, but with a bitter bite. A bit strong.
