Petite Sirah

Durif is a variety of red wine grape primarily grown in Australia, California, France, and Israel. Since the end of the 20th century, wineries located in Washington's Yakima River Valley, Maryland, Arizona, West Virginia, Chile, Mexico's Baja Peninsula, and Ontario's Niagara Peninsula have also produced wines from Durif grapes. It is the main grape known in the U.S. and Israel as Petite Sirah, with over 90% of the California plantings labeled "Petite Sirah" being Durif grapes; the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) recognizes "Durif" and "Petite Sirah" as interchangeable synonyms referring to the same grape. It produces tannic wines with a spicy, plummy flavour. The grape originated as a cross of Syrah pollen germinating a Peloursin plant. On some occasions, Peloursin and Syrah vines may be called Petite Sirah, usually because the varieties are extremely difficult to distinguish in old age.

Carver Sutro 2010 Petite Sirah Palisades Vineyard - 94 Pt Parker

Carver Sutro 2010 Petite Sirah Palisades Vineyard - 94 Pt Parker Robert Parker 94 Points:  "The 2010 Petite Sirah is very similar in style with perhaps a bit less fruit, at least at this stage. It is a cool, inward wine graced with exquisite finesse and elegance. It will be interesting to see where this goes. Today, the 2010 looks to be a relative mid-weight yet impeccable wine from Carver-Sutro. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025. "
