Zanon Petite Sirah Dry Creek Valley
Zanon Wines
United States - California - Dry Creek Valley

Zanon Petite Sirah is a delicious version of a distinctive varietal grape. This deep dark purple wine shows aromas of blueberries and plum. Complex flavors of blueberry, plum, and black pepper with vanilla and soft oak mingle in the background. Well-structured with firm tannins and the ability to age over many years, there is really nothing ‘petite’ about it! It is 100% Petite Sirah.

The Petite Sirah vineyards are located on the hillsides in the scenic and bucolic setting of the historic Dry Creek Valley. It has been grown side-by-side with Zinfandel in the Dry Creek Valley for over 100 years.

The 2018 growing season was blessed with winter and spring rains giving the vines what they needed. Mild summer temperatures allowed slow ripening and development of the grapes color, flavor, and tannins. Picked in late September, it resulted in a beautifully extracted wine. Temperature controlled fermentation occurred in stainless steel tanks with daily pumpovers to extract color and flavor from the skins. Aged in used American Oak barrels for 15 months.
