Aaron 2016 Petite Sirah

The flagship wine that started it all. Each year we taste through every barrel one by one and select the wines to blend together into the Aaron Petite Sirah. Specifically, it’s the barrels that, when tasted blind, simply jump out and wow us. However, it’s never about one specific character or flavor profile, but rather those barrels that speak to us across all the different vineyards. Each site we work with produces a very different style of Petite Sirah, and the goal is to create what we feel is a “complete” wine, which in reality is quite difficult. To check all the boxes, you need to have a lot of elements to create the depth and complexity to really give it that ‘wow factor.’ In total, the blend is made up of 5 different vineyards in the Willow Creek, Adelaida, and Templeton Gap Districts, all of which bring a different element to the blend. Deep aromatics of cherry liqueur, cassis, licorice, and smoked meats complement a huge palate of dark fruits, pepper, spice, and floral notes.

Jeb Dunnuck - 93 Points
"Blackberry, blueberries, tar, toasted spice, and chocolate notes all emerge from the 2016 Petite Sirah (there’s 12% Syrah in the blend) and it's ripe and polished on the palate, with full-bodied richness, silky tannins, and a great finish. This is a sexy, unabashedly California beauty to enjoy over the coming 5-7 years."

Philosophy

Aaron is microscopic wine producer located in Paso Robles, on California's Central Coast. created in 2002 as the brainchild of winemaker and Central Coast native Aaron Jackson, the simple goal is to produce stellar petite Sirah from superior Paso Robles vineyards. being trendy or making wine for the masses is the least of our concern; we're all about pursuing passion. At Aaron, we live and breathe by our motto: "Life should be outrageous. Go Big or go home." The wines we craft reflect the knowledge we've gained for everything and everyone in our lives, as well as our desire to think outside the box and ignore boundaries. We dig in the dirt, talk to the vines, and make wine on the edge. In essence, we always go Big.
