2016 Shypoke Petite Sirah Amelia’s Block Napa Valley California USA$42.00
Shypoke calls the Calistoga AVA home. Their dirt to bottle history began in 1904, when Peter Heitz’ great grandparents immigrated from Alsace and literally planted roots. Named after their daughter, Amelia Heitz, who helps craft the 2016 Shypoke Petite Sirah, Amelia’s Block. In the vineyard, she helps her grandfather “Nonno” tend to the vines. Opaque & rich in color. Aromas and flavors of ripe huckleberry, boysenberry and brown sugar. Magnificently judged ripeness, seemingly on the cusp of end-season richness, yet still married to early season freshness. Remarkable.
Graziano Coro 2016$39.00
Coro Mendocino is a collaborative effort started by eight Mendocino winemakers in 2001 to create a class of distinctive wines that showcase the rich heritage and unique characteristics of Mendocino County. This is the first time in U.S. history that vintners have set blending and aging parameters for wines distinctive to a region (i.e. like the appellation controllee wines of Europe).
The Graziano 2016 Coro Mendocino is a unique blend of old vine Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, and classic Italian grape varieties Barbera, Carignane and Dolcetto, which have come together to create a wine that has great structure and elegance. Aromas of intense plum, black cherry, coffee and spice that weave through the full-bodied, complex mouth-feel, culminating in a rich harmonious finish laced with great acidity, vanilla, earth and toasty oak. The wine’s complexity and depth of flavor will continue to evolve with further bottle aging.
