Tasting Notes

In the past, we’ve only used our Estate-grown Petite Sirah as a blending component for our other wines because its deep colors impart lovely jewel-like tones and its rich flavors add structure and tannin to our Estate Cabernet Sauvignon and Meritage wines.

We took our time with this “First Edition” and let it age gracefully in tightly grained French oak barrels for 30 months before bottling. By nature, Petite Sirah grapes are very small, but pack a walloping punch of both color and flavor. This wine is very aromatic and fruit-forward, with spicy, robust flavors of molasses, blackberries and plums. The entry is bold and the finish long. The color is inky and dark red, so we can almost guarantee a purple tongue and blue teeth. Make sure you have a toothbrush handy!

Because our Petite Sirah plantings are limited in number, be aware that this particular wine will be highly sought after and likely will sell out early.

Store Pod

All Topel wines are lovingly handcrafted by Mark and Donnis, who employ minimalist techniques to transform simple grape juice into world-class wines that are robust, yet balanced and elegant — soulful wines that perfectly reflect the soil and climate of their origin.

“…These enviably pure cabernets are not burdened down with huge tannin and will not whack the taster over his head in terms of power or intensity. Rather, they are beautifully balanced and elegant…”
