Our Small Block wines honor the winemaker’s art, exploring vineyards in depth, examining unusual varietals and artisan winemaking techniques. The fruit for this Petite Sirah was chosen from selected blocks in our estate Allomi vineyard, in the gently rolling hills of Northeastern Napa Valley offers aromas of dusty cocoa and vanilla and intensely flavored dark fruits.
At a Glance
taste + style
“Grown in our Allomi vineyard in Napa Valley, our Petite Sirah with hints of dusty cocoa and vanilla dominate the aromas, leading to deeply colored, intensely flavored dark fruits with chewy tannins that hang around a while in the finish.” -Dave Guffy, Director of Winemaking
Vineyard + Production
Named in honor of the original Spanish land grant which the native Patwin people lent their name – Rancho Locoallomia, the Allomi vineyard is located on the eastern base of Howell Mountain, in one of the most remote areas of Napa County. The growing season starts later than Mount Veeder, yet the long, warm growing season and the well-drained soils create optimal growing conditions and ultimately finish earlier. The Petite Sirah fruit was chosen from selected blocks in our estate Allomi vineyard.
Food + Wine Pairing
Grilled Mission figs with Point Reyes Blue Cheese and balsamic syrup, braised or grilled lamb, or eggplant and root vegetables like beets or celery root. Other options include Cypress Grove Lamb Chopper cheese, aged gouda or medium cheddar, chocolate dipped boysenberries. -Chad Hendrickson, Executive Chef
