Boeger Petite Sirah

2016 Petite Sirah - An intense aroma of dried blueberries and cherries, with notes of fig, green olive and chopped tarragon.  Mouth-coatingly rich and full on the palate.  Grapey fruit flavors persist throughout the surprisingly plush finish.

Blend: 95% Petite Sirah, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon

Description

For many years, Petite Sirah was used at Boeger Winery primarily as a blending component in our various Zinfandels. Our first 100% varietal bottling was done in 1997, and we’ve followed suit ever since. Naturally inky in color with concentrated dark fruit aromas and rich, chewy tannins, Petite Sirah is a naturally big, structured wine. This blend is approximately 50% Estate fruit; the remainder comes from the Walker Vineyard in southern El Dorado County.
