Petite Sirah

Petit Sirah grape

Today, Petite Sirah remains a California favorite, and flourishes in other New World winemaking locations, including Australia, Chile and Argentina. Petite Sirah wines are inky, almost black, with big tannins and sweet plum and blackberry fruit flavors, sometimes with pepper and spice notes. In addition to making varietal wines, Petite Sirah adds color, tannin and complexity to red blends.
