WINE PROFILE

Chewy, bold and dense, this wine has a presence that not-so-much caresses, but attacks the palate! The overall impression is dark and wild, with plum, cocoa, tobacco and spice notes in abundance. Petite Sirah is known for making no-holds-barred, take-no-prisoners, full-bodied, broad-shouldered wines, and Seek & Escape is no exception.

 

FOOD COMBINATIONS

Lamb sausage, beef stew, meat lasagna, pizza, smoked cheeses such as cheddar or gouda, roast game hen.

EXTRA LARGE PETITE SIRAH

Long regarded as best served in bringing its trademark inky black color and tannic structure to a red blend, Petite Sirah is finally getting its long-deserved opportunity to produce wines of true character, all on its own. Today’s Petite Sirahs display a refinement and elegance now that the requisite attention is being paid in the vineyard, and its reputation as a workhorse fades in the rear view mirror.

Our Lodi Petite Sirah is created with this elevated image in mind – a wine that is modern, clean and pure, with a focus on fruit, texture and, most importantly, pleasure. Seek & Escape invites you to embark on this liquid quest to escape your vinous preconceptions and discover the great grape rewards of Lodi Petite Sirah.
