Palisades Petite Sirah |

There’s a good reason why Petite Sirah was the most widely planted grape in Napa until the 60’s. Grown in the right places it makes lovely, evocative wine, even darker and spicier than Zinfandel. Palisades is deeply coloured with a perfumed nose of sandalwood, clove, black pepper and smoke, it’s energetic with refined tannins and a long complex finish. Joel says: “This is Napa Petite Sirah singing a beautiful, lyrical, high pitched song”.
