Petite Sirah

Petite Sirah, unrelated to Syrah, is a vine with small berries which results in a bigger-bodied wine. Petite Sirah is a group of wines for people who like really rich, extracted and firm structured taste.


Monte Volpe Primo Rosso Monte Volpe Primo Rosso $11.00

Shhh! Two years on oak, varietals that suit the CA climate and a talented and down to earth winemaker result in a wonderful everyday red from Mendocino. This is one I always have around as its food friendly and nicely balanced. A $20-$30 wine hiding in a $11 bottle.



Old Soul Petite Sirah Old Soul Petite Sirah $12.50

From the biggest producers of Zinfandel in the world comes this warm and rich Petite Sirah. Big blackberry fruit, caramel and spice flavors. Plenty of warm alcohol paired with some nice structure from Durif's naturally thick skins plus some time in oak make this a big taste at great price.



Orchard Wine Cellar Movers and Shakers This Week

  • Bonavita Red

    #1 Bonavita Red

    Made from four grapes harvested later than usual to achieve a greater ripeness and smoothness. A deep and inky wine, with ripe plum and blackcurrant aromas. Nice ripe fig and cherry with chocolate and licorice flavors. Just enough oak to give it some backbone.
    (Holding the #1 spot)

  • Armas de Guerra Rose

    #2 Armas de Guerra Rose

    My heavens! 50+ year old, organic Mencia vines from some of the highest vineyards in Bierzo. Subtle aromas of strawberry, pink grapefruit and white pepper play with clean river rock minerality touched by zesty key lime. Balance and finish are tied together with a vibrating acidity. Structured and executed like a world class ballerina doing flamenco. Sells out every year for good reason. Lighter than Provence, a different planet than White Zin. The only hard part is only opening one bottle at a time. (behind by 18 bottles)

  • Tintero Moscato

    #3 Tintero Moscato

    Sori Gramella refers to the one of the only single vineyard Moscatos, and Marco is the only producer to bottle this striking limestone amphitheater commercially. Once the 30 year old vines give up their bounty, and the grapes are harvested and pressed, they are kept in stainless steel at a low temperature to prevent fermentation until an order is received in order to provide the freshest wine possible. (behind by 2 bottles)

  • Sweet Sunset Chocolate Merlot

    #4 Sweet Sunset Chocolate Merlot

    First lets say that this is Not ChocoVine. This wine is actually made with eighty five percent Merlot and than has natural chocolate cream added to the mix. This is the wine for anyone looking for sweet red or the chocolate lover at home. Great gift for the holidays. tied

    This single vineyard, certified sustainable sav blanc shows lovely white flower, chili pepper, and gooseberry on the nose with some sandy mineralogy.
