Trentadue La Storia Petite Sirah 2017

SKU 31131


The 2017 La Storia Petite Sirah was made by blending together most of our best blocks of Petite Syrah including some Zinfandel and Syrah. Petite Sirah grapes are very sensitive to dry weather conditions which were exaggerated this year due to our deficit irrigation practices. The 2017 Petite Sirah berries were very small and slightly dehydrated resulting in an impressive wine with very dark, opaque color, beautiful nose of concentrated blue berries and blackberries that leads to a full body mouth feel with engagingly soft tannins. After short aeration the nose opens up with the addition of cocoa, slight earthiness followed by brown sugar and a touch of vanilla-contribution of the new oak barrels. Overall the aromas are of fresh dark fruit and very attractive. Longevity, if stored properly, is one of the virtues of this variety and it will give you the most enjoyment in 5-8 years. Cheers!
