While most wine drinkers consider Napa Valley synonymous with Cabernet Sauvignon, there was once a time when Petite Sirah was the most widely planted grape in Napa. It excelled in the valley, especially towards the warmer north end.  Alas, very little Petite Sirah exists in Napa Valley today.  Growers simply cannot ignore the economics of Cabernet Sauvignon. Fortunately, however, a few old plantings still exist, like the dry-farmed Palisades Vineyard just east of Calistoga. 

Picked September 12th, Carlisle's Napa Valley Petite Sirah spent 31 days on the skins to soften the tannin.  All French oak was used to age this wine, only 20% of it new. The final wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered.

In color the wine is black with light purple bubbles. Blueberries and blackberries galore and full-bodied but with some of the plushest, most round tannins you’ll ever encounter in a Petite Sirah, as a result of the extended maceration. The 20% new oak is nowhere to be found. This wine can be consumed now or it will age gloriously, giving it a wide drinking window.  Enjoy from 2015 through 2030.

Carlisle Winery & Vineyards is a small Sonoma County winery specializing in the production of old vine - vineyards designated Zinfandels and red Rhone varieties. While they like their wines to be bold and intensely flavored, each reflecting its vintage and vineyard, they also strive to create wines of balance, complexity, and nuance. Their goal is always the same: grow and source outstanding fruit, do as little as possible to it, and bottle outstanding, pleasurable wine at the fairest price possible.
