A superbly elegant version of Petite Sirah, this wine is everything you would expect from the varietal with an added layer of grace that can only be found at our estate. The wine’s aromas resemble cloves and sage, blueberry yogurt and fresh jam on buttered toast. The palate starts with cocoa powder and violets then lifts to chilled blueberries. The finish is cinnamon toast crunch and dark chocolate.
Foppiano’s elegant Estate Petite Sirah has approachable fruit and a graceful texture. The winery takes great care to harvest, crush the grapes, and ferment them in a way that preserves the delicate flavors that make this Petite Sirah unique. They cellar the wine in barrels for 22 months (25% New French oak, 50% Used French, Hungarian and American oak, 25% neutral barrels).
Located just south of the town of Healdsburg, Foppiano vineyards sits on 160 acres in the acclaimed appellation of the Russian River Valley. Cool morning fog and warm summer days create an ideal microclimate for grape growing. The Foppiano family has been producing world class fruit on this land since its purchase in 1896.
