Features

2008 Twisted Oak Calaveras County Petite Sirah 750ml 3-Pack

Massive aromas of cherries and blackberries, with touches of currants, violets, and anise - along with humongous jammy flavors of boysenberries, blueberries, and black currants - leading to a ginormous finish of semisweet chocolate.  Pairs well with steak and eggs, any grilled meat, even SPAM or bacon... mmmm, bacon...and of course french toast and custard donuts... mmmm, donuts. Or how about a big fat ribeye steak. And a sauce for that? Try a reduction with finely chopped shallots and carrot, a sprig’s worth of rosemary, and a little lavender or dried Herbs du Provence.

Winery Details

Twisted Oak Winery

Founded:
2004
Owners:
Jeff and Mary Stai
Location:
Murphys, CA
We’re often asked what the background of Twisted Oak is, to which we invariably reply, “The Sierra Nevada, of course!” If we are pressed further, we are forced to admit that Twisted Oak Winery is the culmination of a delusion, er, vision by Jeff and Mary Stai. The vision was of a terroir based winery making superior, hand crafted, yummy wines, and then having more Twisted fun than anyone in the industry selling them.
 
Jeff and Mary found 120 acres just outside Murphys in the Sierra Foothills at nearly 2000 feet elevation. It is there that they planted 10 acres of vineyards to take advantage of the continental Mediterranean soil types and climate. This is all under the watchful eye of a 350 year old California Blue Oak tree that not only is our namesake, but also adorns every Twisted Oak bottle.
 
Jeff and Mary work closely with winemaker Scott Klann in crafting the Twisted Oak wines. Scott has been in the wine making business over 15 years. Scott’s knowledge of what works best is unmatched in the area (it doesn’t hurt that he was raised in Murphys.) Twisted Oak Winery has also received accolades by publications and competitions which have graced us with many scores of 90 or above. We think the Wine Enthusiast put it best “The gang at Twisted Oak Winery are taking winemaking in this area to the next level…”
 
Cheers! And always, keep it Twisted!
