' Quintessential Wines - Foppiano Vineyards Petite Sirah

Foppiano Vineyards Petite Sirah, Russian River Valley Estate, 2019


The 2019 Petite Sirah has a complex nose of ripe fruit, hints of coriander seed, white pepper, mixed herbs, toasted bread and licorice. The substantial mid- palate impresses with sweet purple plum, black tea, baked cherry and huckleberry. The finish offers pie crust and oak spice with the tannins developing into a pleasant textural polish.

Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
The 2019 vintage yielded an elegant and extremely complex version of Foppiano’s Estate Petite Sirah. The winery takes great care to harvest, crush the grapes, and ferment them in a way that preserves the delicate flavors that make this Petite Sirah unique. The wine is cellared in French and American Oak barrels for 24 months. Close observation of the wine’s aging progress has shown quality evolution over time and will continue to improve in the bottle.

Located just south of the town of Healdsburg, Foppiano vineyards sits on 160 acres in the acclaimed appellation of the Russian River Valley. Cool morning fog and warm summer days create an ideal microclimate for grape growing. The Foppiano family has been producing world class fruit on this land since its purchase in 1896.
