Leaf & Vine$25.00
"Vista Luna Vineyard" Lodi
Family-run, family-made wine from Sacramento Delta grapes. This wine boasts the richness and power you expects (and want) from killer Petite Sirah. Smell & taste boysenberries, dark chocolate, Graham crackers, black pepper and soy sauce. Bite of tannins, but not tannic. A sure thing if you like full-flavored Cal reds.

The Keith family make Leaf & Vine in south Napa's "Wine Ghetto." Tim Keith, co-owner makes the wine. Before Leaf & Vine, he was assistant winemaker at Green & Red (2007) and winemaker at Quixote, Petite Sirah specialists, in 2008 and 2009. Tim is very skilled and experienced in making world-class Petite Sirah.
The grapes are from Lodi. If you don't know the quality and value of Lodi wines, it's time you did. California sunshine is tempered by the cooling influence of the Sacramento Delta. Here's a perfect example of what Lodi can deliver. Richness and concentration is the theme, with acidity and tannins giving the wine balance and pleasure.
The Leaf & Vine 2012 all you expect (and want) from killer Petite Sirah. Smell & taste boysenberries, dark chocolate, Graham crackers, black pepper and soy sauce. Bite of tannins, but not tannic. A sure thing if you like full-flavored Cal reds, and EVEN MORE of a sure thing if you like big Cal reds with full-flavored foods cooked on the grill or in the slow cooker.
