Aratas Wine

Vintage: 2009
Varietal: Petite Sirah
Appellation: Napa Valley

1 case produced


This is the encore vintage of Aratas Wine, Napa Valley’s producer solely focused on the American Heritage grape Petite Sirah. Released 10 years ago, this single-vineyard library bottling demonstrates the intrinsic ageability and complexity of site-selective Petite Sirah. Aratas by definition means “harvest of gold” and honors the Chohany family’s Hungarian heritage. There were 502 cases produced of this wine, 100% estate grown in loamy alluvial soils on the valley floor in the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley nested appellation. The wine was fermented on native yeast, had a five-day cold soak, and was aged 20 months in 30% new Trust Hungarian oak and François Frère French oak.
