Three Wine Company is a family winery with a strong focus on sustainable viticulture and hands-on winemaking, helmed by winemaker Matt Cline. This petite sirah comes from a vineyard of 100+ year old vines in Contra Costa county, planted by Portuguese and Italian immigrants.
For this wine, the Petite Sirah grapes come from a mature vineyard in the Contra Costa County. Moderate growing conditions, combined with the sandy-loam soil of the vineyard, lead to low-yields, small berry clusters, and concentrated fruit flavors. In the glass, the wine is a dark purple color, with a jet-black center. The nose has a complex aroma of ripe blueberries, crème de cassis, black mission figs, and sweet rosemary. On the palate, the wine is supple and juicy, with notes ripe black fruits, dark chocolate, baking spices, and white pepper.
Dense and spicy, this is a brisket-and-blanket kind of wine! This wine has worked well with roasted game birds, lamb roasts, grilled lamb, and rack of lamb. It's a big wine that pairs well with "big" dishes.
