2014 Singer Cellars Petite Sirah

92pts “Sommelier to the Stars” Christopher Sawyer

Fruit-forward, smooth and balanced, this is our first attempt at Petite Sirah. The fruit comes from Napa Valley and is made in the same style as our other wines. But it’s big and frisky.

cellar notes
We practice the old-world winemaking method of bâtonnage, or stirring the lees. This process enhances the wine’s structure, gives it extra body, increases the aromatic complexity, and provides a velvety rich mouthfeel.

Each wine ages for up to 20 months in French oak barrels. Between 40% is new oak, with the balance in used French oak barrels. Drinkable upon release, our wines benefit from additional cellar aging, which allows the wine’s complexities to develop and reveal themselves.

tasting notes
In California, the beauty of a fine wine made Petite Sirah is its ability to tantalize the taste buds when young and become more graceful with time in the bottle. The latest example is the limited edition from Singer Cellars made with premiere fruit from Napa Valley.

With a deep and dense purple hue, the wine quickly opens up with inviting aromas of ripe berries, blue fruits, fresh lavender, vanilla, cocoa powder, and cedar box. In the glass, the flavors are broad and generous with lavish notes of briary blackberry, fresh blueberry, huckleberry, chocolate nibs and nuances of fine oak barrels; a smooth texture; and a long engaging finish.

Try these robust flavors with fine cheeses, spicy sausages, lamb sliders, grilled pork chops, hearty stews, and juicy steaks. Enjoy now or age for 5-10 years in the cellar.
