2016 Durif (Petite Sirah) Rutherglen (Campbell's)

Campbell's, Rutherglen Durif, Rutherglen, Australia 2016

100% Durif (Petite Sirah)

DENSE CURRANT & BLACKBERRY, TOASTED VANILLA, PEPPERCORN MEDLY

The story of Durif aka Petite Sirah can be traced back to the 60s - the 1860s, that is - when Syrah spontaneously crossed with a grape that most of us have never heard of called Peloursin. The resultant variety is conducive to inky, muscular reds filled with spice and often evoking comparisons to pappy Syrah as well as Zinfandel and Grenache. Cuttings of the original clonal selection were brought to Australia in the first decade of the 20th century (following all-too-familiar devastation at the hands of the Phylloxera aphid) and have been thriving in the appropriately arid Ruthrglen region ever since. Campbells has recently celebrated a century-and-a-half under vine, and their Durifs are delicious splash of history.

Serving Suggestion: Griddled, whiskey-glazed steak & geen beans sautéed w/ diced apples & hickory-smoked bacon. Savory plantain hashbrowns w/ diced scallions & garlic.

Dancing Coyote, Petite Sirah, Clarksburg, CA 2018

100% Petite Sirah

RICH BLACKBERRY, FRAGRANT SMOKINESS, SMOOTH

The flat expanses of the ingenue Clarksburg AVA may lack the visual drama of its more famous neighbors, but its hot days and cool, fog-fed nights make it prime vineyard real estate. This luscious Petite Sirah takes that ample sunshine and converts it to rich, ripe dark fruit and enticing wafts of hickory smoke.

Serving Suggestion: Mildly spicy lamb & chicken kebabs cooked among friends on a cheap charcoal grill. Grilled mushrooms while you're at it.
