Scottsdale’s own, LDV Winery has announced the release of the latest in their growing line up of Arizona Estate-Grown wines—the 2012 Petite Sirah and “The Signature” Petite Sirah.

The 2012 Petite Sirah exhibits LDV’s usual bold and hearty Petite Sirah characteristics with a soft mouth-feel and managed tannins, according to a press release.

The Grenache adds spicy notes with hints of strawberries and red current. Enjoy with smoked baby back ribs, pizza, blue cheeseburgers, rack of lamb, and marinated beef kabobs.

“The Signature” offers plush, rich flavored and smooth Petite Sirah with dark fruit flavors, wonderful spice and a perfect balance of fruit and oak.

“The Signature” wine pairs well with a chunk of aged parmesan cheese and a loaf of crusty artisan bread or just about anything grilled over Mesquite wood, the release stated. Or just enjoy a glass with a piece of fine dark chocolate.

“Great wine starts in the vineyard and we give as much care to our vineyard growing quality grapes as we do in the winery making hand-crafted wines. Our goal is to produce the highest quality grapes in a sustainable manner in order to produce fine wine.  ‘The Signature’ is made from 100 percent Petite Sirah grapes which is rare and will only occur when the vintage produces grapes that will showcase well,” stated LDV Winery Winemaker and co-owner Curt Dunham, in the release.

With these new releases, LDV Winery has completed their name transition and new branding from Lawrence Dunham Vineyards to LDV Winery.

“The shorter name is easier to remember and during the transition over the past few months, the feedback has been positive from our wine club members, friends, and family,” stated Mr. Dunham in a press release.

LDV Winery can be found at 6951 E. 1st Street in Scottsdale.
