OG N.58 Petite Sirah hails from the McDowell Valley, a relatively cool, 1000-foot elevation site in Mendocino, and is sourced from 40+ year old heritage, head-pruned Petite Sirah vines. I have to admit that I am only tangentially aware of Mendocino's McDowell Valley but I found this wine to be not just compelling and unique, but downright delicious. Its dark but hardly inky, beautifully perfumed and lithe on the palate - a terrific combo of peppery, robust Petite Sirah structure and ripe blackberry jam and raspberry fruit. Gorgeous!

Dark in the glass but not inky. The nose is fresh and vibrant with peppery, meaty blackberry jam accented with rhubarb notes and haloed with powdery, perfumed rose petal and graham cracker spice. Supple on entry with ripe raspberry and white pepper/thyme top notes. Bright but extracted throughout with glycerin-coated tannins that meld beautifully with the brambly fruit and integrated oak in a long, elegant finish. This is truly classy Petite Sirah made in a style that will have broad appeal an potentially change the way you think about PS.
