Winemaker's Notes:

Grape Varietal: Petite Sirah

Let's get down to brass tacks. This Petite Sirah is about the purity of the varietal flavors and California terroir. Brass Tacks Petite Sirah is an opulent wine with flavors of blackberry, plums, vanilla and hints of black pepper and well-integrated tannins lead to a smooth, balanced finish. This is a classic Petite Sirah with big fruit flavors and tannins that the variety is known for. The North Coast is defined by its cool maritime air, morning fog and high elevations and higher than average rainfall that leads to optimum growing conditions. Petite Sirah, also known as Durif in Europe, is a varietal initially developed in France. When introduced in California in the late 1800s, many winemakers mistook it for a clone of Syrah, which led to the name Petite Sirah.

Food Pairings: The tannins in Petite Sirah make it a very food friendly wine. Try with grilled steak, barbeque, pork chops and strong cheeses.
