Description

2018 PORTALUPI L VENTURI VINEYARD PETITE SIRAH | 94 POINTS UNDER $30

Tim Portalupi sourced his Petite Sirah from the organically farmed L Venturi Vineyard in Mendocino, which he chose for its unique climate that creates a balance between acidity and tannins. The half-century-old vines are dry-farmed in well-drained Pinole gravelly loam soils and produce fruit with an intense sense of place… Tim ages his Petite Sirah in American oak barrels, which he believes better settles the inherent acidity of the Petite Sirah grape. The 2018 vintage underwent a complete 100% Malolactic fermentation which results in rich, supple fruit and layers of complexity.

Portalupi Winery Notes, “Delve deep into this wine’s brooding purple color. It offers up a rich aroma and flavor of blackberry jam, cocoa pastry, with an ample mouth-filling roundness. Your palate is enriched with full bodied flavors. Substantial tannins are silky and smooth with a velvety texture that fills your glass leaving you breathless.”
