Vinifera for Oenofiles: Loving Arizona Rhone Varietals
AWGA
Petite Sirah (peh-TEET sih-RAH) is a grape variety that is also known by the name Durif. The red grape variety was first grown in southern France in the late 1800s. Petite Sirah is a small berry with thick skin and tight clusters. One thing is for certain: Petite Sirah is what we like to call "liquid midnight" because of its dark hue and rich tannins. It is often used for blending but on its own it can be intense and peppery that will age well. In this week's Vinifera for Oenofiles, you will gain insight on the Rhone varietal and Petite Sirah from Lawrence Dunham Vineyards.
