About This Wine:
By focusing on a lesser-known, underappreciated variety. Aaron Wines is inspired by a desire to produce powerful, age-worthy wines from the rugged hillsides of Paso Robles. The decision was made to focus efforts around a variety that had no international benchmark: Petite Sirah.
Aaron’s “Citizen” cuvee was born out of the desire to showcase both how complementary and how contrasting Petite Sirah and Syrah could be when blended together. The two varietals are genetically related (Petite Sirah is a cross of Syrah and Peloursin) and share some similar characteristics, yet bring very different flavor profiles to a wine.
Only 184 cases of the 2015 “Citizen” were produced. It’s a big, full-bodied wine that’s fresh on the palate with a very long finish. Decanting is recommended to help this age-worthy wine open up to reveal all of its enticing nuances.
