Wine.Woot purchases now bypass your cart entirely! This means you gotta buy Wine.Woot items on their own, using your Amazon Payments account. You can't mix 'em up with stuff from our other sites. This cowboy's ridin' solo.

Be aware that anything in your cart from the other Woot sites is still out there and looking forward to your return. We'd hate for anything to sell out while you're reading this.

No Sirah-Bob

No, you're not seeing things. Out of our desperate attempt to be rich love for giving you options, we've added a little something extra for today. Come on in and check it out!

The wine that puts hair on your chest, assuming your glands are capable of producing chest hair.

"I would like three bottles of the Esoterica Petite Sirah, please."

The massive yet perfectly balanced red from Napa superhero Kent Rasmussen? Sure, no problem. Can I just see your ID?

"Uh, my ID?"

Yeah. If you want to buy this wine with perfect fruit and perfect structure, you're going to have to show me some ID.

"Oh. Ok. Here ya go".

Mbadinuju Onyekachukwu?

"Hmm? What?"

Your name is Mbadinuju Onyekachukwu?

"Yep. That's me."

I'm sorry, kid. But you're maybe a buck five soaking wet and your face is smoother than a baby's behind. You expect me to believe you're a 42-year-old man named Mbadinuju Onyekachukwu.

"Sure. Why not?"

In Waverly, Ohio?

"Well that's a bit racist, don't you think?"

Okay, fine. What year were you born?

"1970."

What's your address?

"101 West Main Street."

Great. Now spell your last name.

"Uh. What?"

What's wrong? Don't know how to spell your own last name?

"Psssh. Of course I do. Uh … OK. It's O-N … O-M-A … T-O-P-I-A."

You just spelled onomatopoeia. Incorrectly.

"OK, OK, fine. It's a fake ID, but only because I lost my wallet."

Where?

"At a bingo game."

Nice try, buddy. Come back when you have a little 5 o'clock shadow.

Features

2010 Kent Rasmussen Napa Valley Chavez & Leeds Vineyard, Rutherford Petite Sirah 750ml 3-Pack

2010 was about as good a vintage as ever happens for perfect Petite Sirah ripening.  We had a long modesty warm summer and a dry fall that lingered on and on.  Leed’s-Chavez vineyard is a classic “Rutherford Bench” vineyard with deep soils and lots of water-holding capacity for these old dry farmed vines.  It all added up to a wine with wonderful definition and depth.

Nose: Classic Petite Sirah—yet with structure.  At first what hits you is the rich “grapiness” of the nose, and then a wonderful black pepper character pops up that then integrates into a medley of Petite Sirah scents… bramble-berry, reed-grass, tar, and cassis.

Mouth: Once again, black pepper is in abundance, but also tons of rich fruit—ripe blueberries and raspberries.  As the wine washes into your mouth you will get a depth of mouthfeel that you don’t often find in wine.  Layer upon layer of nuance flavors, nicely integrated with good oak warmth and balanced tannins.  The wine is beautifully smooth with virtually no sharp points sticking out.

Winery Details

Kent Rasmussen Winery

Owner:
Kent Rasmussen
Founded:
1986
Location:
St. Helena, CA

Since its modest beginnings, the Kent Rasmussen Winery has evolved into one of the most important producers in the Napa region. The winery outgrew its tractor shed barrel room on Cuttings Wharf Road in the Napa Carneros long ago. In 1995, Kent and Celia established a new winemaking facility in a turn of the century slaughterhouse, on the Silverado Trail in St. Helena. Refined over the years, it now houses business offices, an oenology lab and lab tasting room, a wine library and upgraded production equipment. The modern crusher, press, tanks, catwalks, refrigeration systems, pumps, forklift and fruit sorter have greatly enhanced winemaking options. Grapes are either estate grown or under long term contract with reliable growers.
