"Durif" is a red wine grape known in the US as Petite Sirah, with over 90% of the California plantings being labeled as Petite Sirah are Durif grapes. P.S. I Love You, a California organization for Petite Sirah enthusiasts, is proof of this varietal's robust following.


Traditionally a blending grape, Petite Sirah's bold character and big fruit flavors of black cherry, blackberry and dark plum make it a stand-alone favorite.
