Have you enjoyed a Rhone style wine from Heidi Peterson Barrett?
We opened one of her wine’s Le Barrettage 2014 from La Sirena Winery and were blown away by the quality and complexity of the wine. I tasted this wine on my last visit to Vintner’s Collective in Napa and had to bring a bottle for us to enjoy with grilled smoked chicken. This wine paired perfectly with the mesquite flavored chicken and guacamole.
The name of the winery comes from a playing card of the Mexican card game, Loteria. The La Sirena (mermaid) stood out to Heidi and Bo Barrett (husband), both avid scuba divers and ocean lovers. You will notice the mermaid portrayed on her label. Le Barrettage is paying homage to the L’Hermitage region of Northern Rhone style of wines.
This Rhone blend of Syrah based with Grenache and Petite Sirah from the Calistoga appellation was aged for 24 months in 100% French oak, 40% new. Dark ruby with complex aromas of blackberries, toast and pepper with a silky feel in the mouth as it rolls gently over the palate into a long and sexy finish.
In case you are not aware, Heidi Peterson Barrett was named winemaker of the year in 2020. After tasting this wine, we definitely understand why she is so deserving of this award! Her thinking outside the normal way of making wine has given way to some of the most astonishing wines.
This will definitely not be the last bottle of wine we open by Heidi Peterson Barrett!
