1846 wines are a celebration of varieties that have historic significance in Livermore Valley viticulture. For more than 100 years we have been growing Petite Sirah and our region is home to the family that first varietally labeled this wine. We are proud to source Petite Sirah from the finest vineyards in the Livermore Valley tended by Julio Covarrubias and continue in this amazing tradition.

Tasting Notes

This wine showcasing the generations of world class Petite Sirah grown and produced in the Livermore Valley since the very beginning. Hints of higher tunes red fruit are met with blueberry preserves, boysenberry, and dark chocolate aromatics all enveloped within this black fruited beast. On entry, the chocolate, blueberry and boysenberry flavors are reinforced with a firm tannin structure and acid that balance the wine. An approachable petite with the right combination of fruit, structure and finesse. Decant, serve slightly below room temp
