Winemaker Corey Beck developed a fondness for Petite Sirah in part because it was the favorite varietal of his grandfather's, a Napa Valley grape grower back when the California wine industry was just gaining notoriety. After years of experimenting with the varietal, they sought out prime Petite Sirah vineyards to include this wonderful wine in their Diamond Collection.
The fruit for the 2007 Petite Sirah is grown in diverse regions throughout California. Immense color saturation and intense aromas of sweet, juicy boysenberries set the stage for a wine loaded with lush, jammy fruit, and long, lingering flavors of plums, blackberries, sage and a hint of smoke. Pairs perfectly with lamb chops, brisket, or creamy mushroom soup.
