ABOUT THIS WINE

The 2013 August Briggs Napa Valley Petite Sirah is sourced from the Meyer vineyard located right here in Calistoga. We have sourced Charbono from this vineyard and thought the perfect foil to the rich but smooth Charbono would be to purchase some bold and decadent Petite Sirah grapes. From this vineyard, Petite Sirah can perfectly ripen due to the long, hot summers which bring depth of flavor, ripeness and bold fruit flavors that dominate a rich mouthful of wine.

Petite Sirah is known for its deep color and powerful flavors and this offering fits the bill. This 100% single vineyard, single varietal, has an inky black color, with a hearty nose of rich black plum, boysenberry, molasses and roasted coffee bean. A solid blackberry fruit core is framed by oak and spice flavors, with tannins coming in on the finish. This petite has great complexity, good tannins and is deep, dark and concentrated. Only for the bold! 100 cases
