Aromas of red raspberry, jammed dark fruit, cinnamon spice and clove. Hints of sliced ripe plum, black tea and lavender oil adds to its complexity. On the palate, there are flavors of blueberry, elderberry, and cranberry, enhanced with oak spice and baking notes from the barrels. These flavors marry with soft tannins for a long and mouthwatering finish.

Wine Enthusiast (92 pts):

“This vibrant, firmly structured wine is built for further aging, as the tangy acidity and firming tannins need
time to resolve. Raspberries, red cherries and cranberries are lifted by nervy tannins for a racy version of
Zinfandel. Best from 2026–2032.”

Wine Spectator (90 pts):

“Briary and plump with zest, offering appealing blackberry, roasted sage and licorice flavors that finish with snap. Drink now through 2031.”

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.
