Parducci True Grit Petite Sirah 2008

by Nannette Eaton on January 24, 2012

“It takes a little courage, and a little self-control. And some grim determination, If you want to reach the goal. It takes a great deal of striving, and a firm and stern-set chin. No matter what the battle, if you really want to win, there’s no easy path to glory. There is no road to fame. Life, however we may view it, Is no simple parlor game; But its prizes call for fighting, For endurance and for grit; For a rugged disposition that will not quit.” — Navy SEAL Masterchief

“The only good luck many great men ever had was being born with the ability and determination to overcome bad luck.” — Channing PollockAmerican’s are known for determination, drive, work-ethic. Sticking it out in the face of impossible odds. Grittiness. How the West was won. True grit. Parducci celebrates and honors the American spirit in every bottle Parducci True Grit Petite Sirah. Petite sirah is an underappricated grape, but it’s a perfect metaphor: heady, brash, exuberant, rough around the edges, but with plenty of heart and determination. A little “in your face” in it’s youth, but mellows with age and experience. The aromas envelope your senses with lush fruit, with flavors of warm blackberries and vanilla with a kick of spicy pepper. The perfect pairing is Cowboy Steak. The music match is the Bruce Springsteen album The Ghost of Tom Joad. Drink True Grit. Show the rest of the world what you’re made of.
