Petite Sirah is one of my favorite wine varieties and Peterson Winery is one of my favorite producers. Combine the two and you are likely to be pleased. This wine is a blend of 75% Petite Sirah, 17% Mourvedre, 5% Syrah, 2% Zinfandel and 1% Carignane from Sonoma’s Dry Creek Valley AVA. The fruit comes from several vineyards including the West Vineyard which contributes relatively newly planted Petite Sirah and 80 year old Zinfandel to this blend. The remainder is grown in Norton Ranch, Tollini Vineyard and Peterson’s own Bradford Mtn. Vineyard.
Peterson Winery, Petite Sirah , Dry Creek Valley, 2002 ($26) – Deepest purple-black in color with aromas of blackberry liqueur, blueberry, sage and vanilla. In the mouth there’s rich with boysenberry jam, black pepper and coffee flavors finishing with moderate and well integrated tannins. A well balanced example of this varietal that will continue to please for a few more years. Only 200 cases produced.

I recently enjoyed a bottle of your 2002 petite sirah, and would like to know if there is an outlet in SW Oregon that sells it. If not, I am having difficulty finding the right price for the bottle I had. Can you tell me the easiest way to get a bottle of this fine wine?
