Treatments MIcroshoot tip tissue culture therapy
Comments The plant material for this selection originated at property of the St. Helena Public Library near Oakville, California. This selection was discovered as part of a project to collect old vine selections for a Petite Sirah planting at the Oakville Field Station. Three types of purported 'Petite Sirah' vines (Durif, Peloursin, and Syrah) were found in the vineyard, suggesting that they might once have been blended into a black variety named field blend that was used a long time ago in the Napa area. The plant material came to Foundation Plant Services in 2001, where it underwent microshoot tip tissue culture disease elimination therapy.
