Parducci True Grit Reserve Petite Sirah | Bold Dinner Wine | Will evolve for years
Jim Gordon, Wine Enthusiast “Parducci has been making excellent Petite Sirah like this for decades. The Parducci True Grit Reserve Petite Sirah 2015 has rich oak and potent fruit flavors. These combine for attention in this densely textured, full-bodied wine. The wine tightly packs in the blackberry and dark chocolate flavors with firm tannins, while keeping good balance despite its size.”
Winemaker Notes: Parducci True Grit Reserve Petite Sirah 2015 has heady aromas of ripe fruit with white pepper and vanilla. In addition, an intense rush of fresh blackberry, dark chocolate, pepper, and caramel flavors together delivering a great wine.
True Grit Reserve wines are the product of very selective fruit sourcing and hands-on winemaking. Boldly expressive of varietal character, each vintage gives the full range of expression for a fearlessly distinct wine.
Sixteen-year-old Adolph Parducci arrived in Northern California with his parents in 1912. While the new immigrant family settled in Mendocino County an area that resembled their native Tuscany. Even today, the geography and climate of Mendocino County are similar to Northern Italy. The County’s hillside vineyards provide plenty of exposure to ripen hearty red grape varieties, while deep river valleys with good drainage support flavor-packed white grapes. Adolph purchased his first vineyard in 1921, just one-year after Prohibition. To survive, Parducci created a market for his grapes with home winemakers from as far away as New York. Adolph and his four sons built their full-scale winery in 1932 on the site of their original Home Ranch just above the Ukiah Valley.
So in 1944, Parducci produced one of the first varietal bottlings of California Zinfandel. This wine signaled the arrival of California as a premium winegrowing area and of Parducci Wine Cellars as the producer of quality wines. Two years later, we made the first varietal bottling of California Petite Sirah and today we are still the largest producer of Petite Sirah with just over 20,000 cases.
Parducci is “Family Farmed,” locally owned and operated in California’s Mendocino County. As a result, we are committed to sustainable winegrowing practices. While yielding top quality grapes and wines while protecting the environment.
