The wine opens with floral notes of rose that mingle with fresh blue fruit, plum, and notes of herbs – thyme, sage, juniper and dried lavender. On the palate, the wine balances bright fruit with some underlying earthy notes that offer a savory edge along with chewy tannins, mouthwatering acidity and a lingering long finish.
Pair with roast duck or rabbit and a stone fruit mostarda or a savory parmesan risotto with fresh tomato sauce.
David’s Heritage represents a blend of Petite Sirah, Syrah, and Grenache grapes that are sourced completely from vineyards in Dry Creek Valley. The Syrah and Grenache come from Saini vineyards on the east bench land. The old vine Grenache was originally planted in 1942. The Petite Sirah is sourced from Perotti vineyards on in the northwest corner of the valley.
