Collier Falls Petite Sirah 2016, Dry Creek
In 1997, Barry Collier saved the top 8 rows of the Zinfandel block for Petite Sirah vines to blend with our Zin. 6 years later the Petite tasted too good to blend and they decided to bottle it as a stand alone varietal. This 100% estate-grown Petite Sirah is inky black in color with aromas of eucalyptus and cracked peppercorn alongside floral nuances of honeysuckle and violet. Dark, layered flavors of blueberry jam, blackberry cobbler, and tea leaves highlight the mid-palate. This is an opulent, full-bodied wine that shows surprising restraint and soft tannins, accentuated by a plush and lingering finish with a touch of vanilla oak. Only 66 cases made.
