Tasting Notes

This unique Petite/Petit blend is smooth, seamless and well-balanced. Petite Sirah’s bright blackberry and boysenberry flavors are a counterpoint to Petit Verdot’s brambly, spicy, dark chocolate notes. Fine dusty tannins are balanced by juicy red fruit flavors.

Vineyard Notes

Due east of Napa, tucked away in northern California’s rolling Dunnigan Hills, is a little town called Zamora. But back in the late 1800’s, folks around here used to call it Black’s Station. At its height, this hub founded by J.J. Black boasted a hotel, two stores, a jail, blacksmith shops and a town hall. Today we grow our grapes just three miles from Zamora. We like to think that they carry with them the character and frontier-style of that old town.

Pairings

Pair this crowd-pleasing red blend with a standing rib roast, pulled pork sliders or a vegetable lasagna.
