Kent Price Venant du Coeur Red Switchback Ridge: Petit Syrah
Petite Sirah dominates the blend (46%) and was first to be harvested.  This was followed by Syrah (31%) a week later and added to the tank and kept cool awaiting the Zinfandel (23%) that followed a few days later. Petite Sirah continues to contribute a deep purple hue so typical of the varietal along with masculine notes of blue and black fruits on the nose and palate. Syrah contributes its typical beacon fat character on the nose and a sense of elegance on the palate while Zinfandel adds its characteristic red berries, pepper and spice.

Calistoga, Napa Valley 100% Petit Sirah Cases produced: 448 Aging: 14 months; mostly neutral “Intense boysenberry and black fruit extract with mouth-filling viscosity and vibrant natural acidity. This massive beauty still retains expressive grace with a long, complex finish.” - Bob Foley, Winemaker
