“Editor’s Pick” “Top Rhones from California” Aratas Napa Valley Petite Sirah
The “Top Petite Sirahs of the Year- 2015” [2011 Aratas Petite Sirah]
The top ranked Petite Sirah, first place winner Aratas Wine… a beautiful example of 100% Petite Sirah
We all know that some whopping wine prices are based on reputation and scarcity. In a tasting like ours [Aratas] the true cream rises to the top
Aratás puts more bottle age on their Petite Sirah than most, and the extra maturity shows…a beautifully sculpted wine.
The highest rating I’ve ever given a Petite Sirah

If God invented a better food pairing than petite sirah and steely ribeye, she has not yet revealed it to me.

The Aratás wines are dark and seductive, with sensuous textures that nevertheless feel built for the cellar.
