Food Pairings for Quivira Petite Sirah Dry Creek Valley Wine Creek Ranch
Dry Creek Valley Petite Sirah is known for its big, thick texture and powerful black-purple fruit flavors. The 2008 vintage was impressively concentrated, with a blast of flavor on entry that does not let up all the way into the finish. A big varietal to begin with, the 2008 Petite Sirah grown in our Biodynamically-farmed Wine Creek Ranch estate vineyard is a study in texture: thick, dense and chewy, with amazing color, density and concentration. The impressive concentration of this vintage demands your immediate attention. Deep, dark color and dense texture wrap around intense fruit notes of blackberry and plum, punctuated by notes of cedar, cassis and allspice. Still obviously youthful, tannins are grippy and chewy. We completely understand if you can’t wait to enjoy this bold but beautifully balanced wine. But patience will be well worth it; in 12 to 18 months, this wine will soften and round out beautifully. Lay down up to 10 years (through 2020) in your cellar for additional rewards in the glass.
417 cases bottled March 2010 produced.
