Critical Acclaim

RP94 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 30th Oct 2014

"The fabulous, opaque purple-colored 2012 Petite Sirah Peterson Family Vineyard boasts beautiful blueberry, blackberry and blackcurrant fruit notes intertwined with notions of camphor, spring flowers, spice and oak. Full-bodied, opulent, fleshy and super-concentrated, with a skyscraper-like mid-palate and finish, this sensational red can be drunk now, because of its approachability, and over the next 20–25 years." (94 pts.)

SP87 Wine Spectator Dec 15, 2015

"A core of deep, dark flavors of plum, blackberry and cassis is at the core of this wine. Sarsaparilla, black tea, roasted nut and spice accents gain momentum on the finish. Firm tannins. Drink now through 2025. 623 cases made." (87 pts.)

California

When it comes to US wine production, California is King. California wines account for almost 90% of all wines produced in the United States each year, and is home to the most celebrated vineyards and producers in the country. California is probably best known for its world-famous Cabernets and Chardonnays, many of which hail from its two most-acclaimed AVAs, Napa Valley and Sonoma County. Other prominent grapes used in California wines include Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, and Zinfandel (which California made popular).

United States

The United States now ranks fourth in the world in wine production behind, France, Italy, and Spain. While about 90% of that wine is produced in California, other states like Oregon, New York, and Washington are establishing themselves as prime spots for wine production, as well. Just about any variety of wine can be found in production somewhere in the United States.
