The 2021 Petite Sirah is a sophisticated and sumptuous example of the varietal, one of the most complex examples of Petite Sirah you will find. Blueberry and baked huckleberry lead the aromas, with a hint of white pepper, dried herbs and toasted bread. The aromas follow through to the palate with flavors of blueberry, black tea, baked cherry, fruit preserves and licorice. The wine finishes with pie crust, oak spice and tannins developing into a pleasant textural polish.

James Suckling (91 pts):

"Notes of brambles with lifted floral notes, lavender and rose petals followed by eucalyptus, fresh whipped cream, vanilla and toast. Full-bodied with soft acidity and solid yet ripe tannins. Nice tension here with good structure and framing. Try after 2026."

Wine Spectator (90 pts):

"A zesty, old-school Petite Sirah, with energetic blackberry, licorice and mincemeat accents that perk along toward fine-grained tannins. Drink now through 2030."

As one of the founding members of the Russian River Valley AVA and Sonoma County’s oldest continually operated family-owned winery, Foppiano knows what it takes to make good wine. Acumen and intuition have guided this winery to good decision making since its founding in 1896 by Giovanni Foppiano. The winery survived the turbulent Prohibition era by selling home winemaking kits in the 1920s, and today, the fifth generation Foppiano, Paul, is President and Vineyard Manager.

The wine, of course, like its operating heritage, has consistently been held in high regard. Some of them have won gold medals, like their Estate Pinot Noir, while other varieties, like Petite Sirah, have legions of fans. In fact, Foppiano won the coveted Civart Award at Vinexpo Bordeaux in 1999 for its ’96 Petite Sirah, and the First Petite Sirah symposium was held at the winery in 2002 by the group P.S. I Love You. Louis M., fourth generation of Foppiano, was the group’s first charter member and has championed and elevated the reputation of Petite Sirah in the region.
