Viticulture

Half of the grapes for this wine were grown by Peachy Canyon, and the other half were sourced from a small vineyard site in El Pomar with which Peachy Canyon has a decades long relationship. The resulting wine is dense and chocolatey – a vivid example of what well-grown Petite Sirah from Paso Robles tastes like.

Vinification

After sorting the fruit these wines were aged in a combination of French and Hungarian Oak barrels and puncheons. The final blend was assembled and bottled in May of 2021.

Owning & Enjoying

Tasting notes

Dark garnet in color, this wine has aromas of black fruit, licorice, anise and sage. It is bright on the palate and tastes of black currants, dark herbs and boysenberries.

Pairing

Pair this Petite Sirah with grilled meats and vegetables, roasted pork roasts and game meats.

Producer Description

Zinfandel Specialists of Paso Robles

Peachy Canyon Winery is a family-owned and operated winery in Paso Robles, on California’s Central Coast.  Founded by Doug and Nancy Beckett in 1988, and considered one of Paso Robles’ earliest 10 wineries, Peachy Canyon has long been praised as a producer of award-winning California wines that epitomize respect for terroir and dedicated winemaking.  With our exemplary Zinfandels, Peachy Canyon was instrumental in establishing Paso Robles’ reputation as a key California wine region.

 
Today, Peachy Canyon Winery is managed by 2nd-generation owners, Josh and Jake Beckett, who spent their childhood in the vineyard and winery alongside their parents, Doug and Nancy.  During their decades long career path in the industry, the brothers recognized an opportunity for more unorthodox brands in the market.  In 2004, they took a leave from Peachy Canyon to create their own brand, Chronic Cellars.  Through shrewd marketing and remarkable quality wines, they built Chronic Cellars to 17,000 cases before selling to Winery Exchange in 2014 and subsequently completing the five-year buyout agreement in early 2019.  Promptly thereafter, Josh and Jake returned to Peachy Canyon Winery to relieve their parents of the daily operations and responsibilities of the family business.
 
Although Peachy Canyon has historically been known as a Zinfandel house, a full 40% of what is planted today is Rhone and Bordeaux variety based.  Josh and Jake recently acquired some new vineyards. The family now cultivates 102 acres planted on Paso’s westside, all within the 3 most coveted sub Ava’s:  Willow Creek, Adelaida and the Templeton Gap.  Future plantings will include Zinfandel, Rhone and Bordeaux varieties as the brothers are interested in continuing to develop their production of Estate wines and blends.  Beginning with the 2019 vintage, Peachy Canyon will use fruit exclusively from its 102 acres of family-owned, estate vineyards in Paso Robles.
