Empire 2011 Petite Sirah, Winemaker's Reserve, Napa Valley
Our current inventory is all sold out! Order today to reserve our last shipment of inventory expected to arrive on November 6th!
Here's a wine that we're certain will surprise you as much as it did us. Robert Parker has called Petite Sirah "the most underappreciated red wine in California for drinking pleasure and longevity." and this wine is a prime example of what he's referring to. Grapes for this Reserve Petite are sourced from a single vineyard in Calistoga which is the northern end of Napa Valley where the warm climate is ideal for Petite Sirah. Aged in oak for an added dose of complexity, this wine shows bold intensity, and the 5+ years of bottle age have rounded off the rough edges leaving it velvety and rich with spicy nuances that linger long on the finish. We're thrilled to have been able to get our hands a limited supply of this big Napa Valley red at a great price just for our Wine Express customers. Gotta try it!!!
