Wine Basics — Grape Varietals 101: Petite Sirah (aka: Durif)
Wine Basics — Grape Varietals 101: Viognier
The Petite refers to the size of the berries and Sirah has nothing to do with the Shiraz/Syrah varietal. This dark inky and rich red is a great alternative to the trustworthy Cabernet Sauvignon. We like the Stags’ Leap because of its full-bodied and savoury flavour profile. The wine is spicy and exotic with black fruit and dark chocolate aromas and the flavours play across the palate. It is complex and tasty and balances perfectly with smoky, grilled meats.
