Each year, Aaron and his staff taste through every barrel one by one and select the wines to blend together into the Aaron Petite Sirah. Specifically, it's the barrels that, when tasted blind, simply jump out and wow us. However, it's never about one specific character or flavor profile, but rather those barrels that speak to us across all the different vineyards. In total, the blend is made up of 7 different vineyards, primarily in the Willow Creek and Adelaida Districts, with a small amount of fruit from the Templeton Gap District for spice. The unique terriors of the each district bring a different element to the blend.
JEB DUNNUCK 94 POINTS - "The 2018 Petite Sirah (there's 12% Syrah) reveals an inky purple hue as well as full-bodied aromas and flavors of blueberries, black cherries, peppery herbs, and violets. It has terrific purity, fine, polished tannins, and a great finish."
