2012 Il Cinghiale Petite Sirah

We named this wine Il Cinghiale — wild boar in Italian — for a reason: brawny and rich, it evokes untamed forest, an open fire and roasting meat. Petite Sirah was first introduced in California in 1878, mistakenly as Syrah. Growers recognized the error and soon began calling the newcomer Petite Sirah for its small berries and low yields.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The fragrance of this wine is a lavish bouquet of deep, dark fruit which delivers a genuine introduction to the full bodied, flavorful palate of lush blackberry and black currants.


Long, warm days aided by the absence of marine influence marks this site. The soils are composed of clay and clay loam with underlying layers of basalt, sandstone and volcanic rock. Vines are challenged by the low nutrient level of the clay and the shallow topsoil, which both force them to produce more concentrated fruit.
