Tasting Notes

A Petite/Petit blend of elegance and power. Smooth, fresh fruit flavors of Petite Sirah marry well with the firm tannin and structure of Petite Verdot. Aromas of vanilla and violets lead to flavors of chocolate, mocha, borwn baking spices and red berries. There is a good grip of tannins and a nice firm finish. Pair this spicy red blend with dishes centered on a tomato-based red sauce.

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.
