One of the very best values anywhere. Intensely fruity, substantial no-nonsense Petite Sirah.
The Line 39 project (the latitude line through Northern California wine country) has given us wines of great value, making Best Of lists for over a decade. The first--and I think best--value for me has always been the outstanding Petite Sirah. With grapes coming from the Central Coast, Lodi and Madera, this super-bargain is a dark ruby-colored, intensely fruity wine with notes of blackberries followed by firming tannins. Bright and fresh tasting, it passes the most important test; after drinking, you want more! Grab some cheeses or a juicy steak.
