Wine Thursday: Rutherford Grove Napa Valley Petite Sirah
posted on November 16th, 2017 by Leslie Thomas
Dark and deep purple in color, this Petite Sirah is a lush, ripe wine, impressive for its sheer power and fruit that offers a balance of spice and vibrant tannins. The flavors are on the wild side, brimming with blackberry and sweet vanilla, plums, bacon and exotic spices. Layered and complex, floral notes and a slightly peppery sensation balance the jammy, fruity characteristics and lends a savory earthiness to the finish. Pair this full-bodied beauty with anything from spicy Cajun, smoky, and grilled meat to dark Turkey meat and whatever stuffing you can toss its way too. If you have any aged Gouda around, it will be sublime with that cheese! Only 322 cases produced.
This Petite Sirah was made from Spring Hill Vineyard, located in the St. Helena appellation. The vineyard is on the west side of the Valley floor and benefits from copious direct sunlight during the growing season as well as cool breezes in the afternoon, a perfect situation for Petite Sirah.
