Winemaker's Notes: "At 2,000’ the Petite Sirah produces concentrated wines that regularly need two or three years in bottle to allow for the wine to ‘calm down’. Petite is famous for its firm tannins and rich blueberry flavors, which the Diener Ranch has in spades. Also featured are nuances of cedar, dark chocolate and new oak. The very long finish with tannin dryness contributes to a wine that goes surprisingly well with food. A pork stew with prunes, thyme, rosemary, pearl onions and brandy would be an amazing Fall paring. Drinks best in three years and will continue to amaze for 10+ years."
