Rusina wines protect and support the character of the vineyard through minimalist winemaking and hands-on attention to detail. Mostly Petite Sirah from rocky soils in Alexander Vlley, blended with a little Zinfandel. Complex with dark fruit. The Rusina winery is named for the Roman goddess called upon by ancient farmers to protect their fields and vineyards. Rusina is a small family winery and producer of hand-made wines sourced from small, family-owned vineyards in Sonoma County's Alexander and Dry Creek Valleys. The Alexander and Dry Creek Valleys are some of those most desired areas and are home to some of the state's oldest plantings , cultivated and nourished by generations of family farmers dedicated to the simple task of farming for quality. These exquisite sites, often undiscovered by most winemakers, form the core of Rusina wines.

Winemaker's Notes:

Notes on the Rusina Alexander Valley Petite Sirah 2006 : NVWE NOTES: Darkly fruity and concentrated, the aromas of this vivid Petite Sirah offer tightly-wrapped Blackberry/blueberry jam and pomegranate syrup scents suffused with equally prominent notes of black and white peppercorns, crushed dried rose, brown bread and sweet vanilla. The wine is as well defined and rich on the palate as the nose suggests, but needs lots of airing to fully bring out all of its fruit and spice elements. The finish is long and, if certainly youthful and age-worthy, the wine is satisfying already and its tannins are polished enough to be unobtrusive. Expect two or three years of improvement, but feel free to enjoy it now with rich beef entrees or barbecues. 150 cases produced.RUSINA ALEXANDER VALLEY PETITE SIRAH 2006
