Enticing aromas of black currant, white pepper, and a subtle touch of chocolate mint. The wine is dry and full-bodied with moderate tannins and medium acidity. Pair with shrimp skewers with adobo sauce and lime rice.
Petite Sirah (aka, Durif) is the offspring of Syrah and Peloursin. Durif was developed in France in the mid-1800s to resist powdery mildew but was found to be less resistant to gray rot, which exists more in France than in the drier climate of California. Petite Sirah is often blended with Zinfandel to add structure and color to a wine and, of course, is also a fantastic standalone wine.
