This wine is a perfect example of why we are seeing a resurgence of interest in this historic grape variety. Grown on old world head pruned vines in the Napa Valley, the fruit in this wine is brimming with blueberry and raspberry character with a touch of pepper. On the palate the wine is surprisingly soft while retaining the mouth filling tannins and body for which our Petite Sirah is justly renowned. The middle of the wine shows multiple levels of flavor with a rich silky mouth feel. The finish is smooth and shows an excellent balance of soft tannins and ripe fruit.

All of the fruit we use to make this comes from the small clone Petite Sirah which we believe delivers richer concentration and brighter flavors. Our vineyards are all in Calistoga where the warmer climate and rich soils provide great depth of character to our Petite Sirah.

Producer
Thirty years after first planting its vineyards, Girard continues to produce wine reflecting the quality that has made Napa Valley the most famous New World wine growing region in the world.

Longtime California vintner Pat Roney purchased the winery in early 2000. Patís career in wine began as a sommelier at Chicagoís renowned Pump Room. Later he returned to his native California, where he ultimately became president of Chateau St. Jean, in Sonoma Valley.

At Girard, Pat continues a tradition of making Chardonnay and Cabernet-based wines. But he is also expanding Girardís varietal focus to Zinfandel and Petite Sirah, grown on century-old vines that dot the Napa countryside. New vineyard plantings are also underway on both Diamond and Howell mountains, which border the western and eastern edges of the valley.

As it has been in the past, Girardís goal is to highlight the flavors of Napa Valley and its rich, ripe grapes. A small portion of the wineryís portfolio also comes from grapes grown in Sonomaís upscale Russian River Valley, where cool weather offers ideal conditions for Chardonnay. With the right grapes from the right locations, Girard offers a lineup that features both power and finesseókey words in California wine.
