Comments Pierce's disease resistant winegrape. This red wine grape is 94% V. vinifera, makes wines with characteristics of both Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah and is resistant to Pierce’s Disease. It is established in large test plots along the Napa River and commercial scale wines have been made from this plot. This selection is one of the earliest to break dormancy, and it also blooms and ripens early. The berries are relatively large and the well-filled clusters are medium in size. This selection has been repeatedly tested in a UC Davis greenhouse screen and is highly resistant to Pierce’s Disease. It has ranked highly at numerous tastings of both Davis and Napa grown fruit. Tasting notes include: dark-red purple color, bright red fruit, raspberry, cherry, ripe, tannic, elegant rather than dense. Technical: This variety was bred by Dr. Andrew Walker and is 50% Petite Sirah and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon.
