Maxville 2016 Petite Sirah Napa Valley

Maxville Estate Petite Sirah

Petite Sirah may be the hidden gem of our Chiles Valley estate vineyard.  Up until the 1960’s, Petite Sirah was one of the most widely planted grapes in Napa Valley.  Over time, this acreage has dwindled to select heritage vineyard locations where the grape produces deep and richly textured red wines that show the distinctive character and age-ability of this grape. 

Our 2 blocks of Petite Sirah were planted in 2001 with this goal in mind.  Our Chiles Valley estate vineyard is located east of the valley floor, nestled in the Vaca Mountains at an elevation of 900 to 1,200 feet.  Due to this higher elevation, daytime and nighttime temperatures are cooler, producing Petite Sirah that retains refreshing acidity alongside the signature tannins of this varietal.  Separation of free run juice from press fractions before barrel aging was critical to ensure the finished wine exhibits plush, ripe tannins alongside its deep, dark berry fruit.

2015 Vintage - 90 Points, Wine Enthusiast

Juicy, dusty and black cherry-flavored, this is a soft, rich and well-integrated wine, boldly concentrated and complex, yet easily enjoyed now. The tannin structure is impressively built and a good foil for the oak - Virginie Boone.

2014 Vintage - 93 Points, Wine Enthusiast

This is a newly released wine, sultry and peppery, with lip-smacking waves of blackberry and raspberry, bold and brooding and ultimately delicious. Full-bodied, it finds balance between its velvety texture and spikes of black pepper and leather - Virginie Boone.
