Cupcake Vineyards Petite Sirah

This Petite Sirah from California’s cool Central Coast areas is hardly petite in nature. Dense and full-bodied, this wine is bursting with dark cherry, luscious blackberry and bittersweet espresso flavors against a creamy backdrop.

This Petite Sirah from California’s cool Central Coast areas is hardly petite in nature. Dense and full-bodied, this wine is bursting with dark cherry, luscious blackberry and bittersweet espresso flavors against a creamy backdrop. We gather tiny Petite Sirah berries, packed tight with character, in the early morning before gently pressing and draining them to limit skin contact. This approach brings the fruit forward in a soft, rich wine while minimizing tannins. Special yeast used during fermentation also boosts the wine’s fruit and structure. We then keep some wine in the tank, and the rest is aged 12 months in French and American oak barrels to add creaminess.

Serve it with a juicy pork tenderloin with a Petite Sirah reduction.
