Often confused with Syrah, Petite Sirah is actually a French variety called Durif. Durif is the result of a cross-pollination between Peloursin and Syrah. Planted in California in the 1880's, Petite Sirah is known for its big fruit and bold character. This variety creates wines that are inky in color and leans towards higher tannins.
Woodbridge Winemaker's Selection Petite Sirah offers leather, smoke and mocha aromas and flavors of dark, blackberry fruit with anise, clove and mace, accenting the supple, rich palate. Our Petite Sirah is the perfect addition to a summer barbecue ensemble. The dark red currant and spice flavors of this wine are a great complement to roasted or grilled meats. Traditional fare of steaks with grilled portobella mushrooms, or braised shortribs make for a rich evening with family and friends.Where to BuyEat & Drink
