This Perfect 10 (94+ point) wine is not for the faint of heart! Sink your teeth into the big, tannic, chewy and delicious Lost Chapters Napa Petite Sirah.
Have we got a good one today! A Gold Medal and Best of Class winner at the San Francisco Wine Competition, this 100% Petite Sirah hails from Napa County. It is aged for over 24 months in French oak barrels and has just 1 g/L of residual sugar. Only 140 cases were produced.
The winemakers are two of the biggest names in the business, Paul Scotto and Mitch Cosentino:
In 2017 The Lost Chapters was born representing the culmination of 5th generation Winemaker Paul Scotto's dream. Each year Paul sources and crafts dozens of brands, varietals and blends for the Scotto Family's extensive wine portfolio. In his relentless search for just the right barrel lots to fit the profile of each bottling, Paul occasionally encounters something very special that deserves its own place. While these select and limited lots may enhance a given blend, they would also present themselves far better as a stand-alone that most likely would not be repeated in future vintages.
Add to this the deep experience of Mitch and you can begin to see why this wine is so special:
Mitch is the personification of a "hands-on" winemaker with his never ending drive and oversight from the vineyard to bottle and on to the glass. With his far-reaching expertise, Mitch has garnered almost 2000 awards and medals.
With foresight of things to come in the market, Mitch broke new ground with the founding of the Meritage Association (now known as the Meritage Alliance) in 1988 and produced the first American wine bottled with that designation.
Mitch is widely recognized in the international winemaking community for his blending skills, deep connection with the vineyard and amazing palate memory. He artfully combines these great skills in each of the wines he crafts exhibiting the distinctive expression of the vineyard and varietal (or mix of varietals) in precise balance.
Combining his "hands-on" tradition with a pledge to time honored Old World techniques, Mitch is committed to crafting small lots of extraordinary wines. A perfect fit with the Scotto family's vision for J. McClelland Cellars.
With this type of experience, Napa grapes, and extensive French oak, it's actually a bit surprising that the normal price of this wine is only $40.

From the winery:
Deep purple-ruby natural color abounds. River stone minerality, black pepper, currants and black rose notes fill the aromatic profile. Flavors cross a broad spectrum of fruits: dense currants blackberries, black plums with rhubarb and peppercorns, well centered and big structured yet with a surprising suppleness on the mid-palate. It finishes long, spicy and firm with some ripe tannins.
A Wine Adventure From Mitch Cosentino and Paul Scotto
Bottled by J McClelland Cellars
The 2017 Lost Chapters Napa Petite Sirah opens with a big, very attractive aroma of ripe blackberry and plum, black pepper, cedar and dusty spice. It's certainly a promising start, which is confirmed on the very first sip.
Big, tannic and delicious in the mouth, this hedonistic Petite Sirah is filled with more ripe, dark fruit, very well-integrated spice and black pepper notes that are all wrapped up in a smooth, lush mouthfeel. This is a big, delicious Petite Sirah that is not for the faint of heart! It's fabulous with dark chocolate.
The wine ends with a dry, chewy, long and lingering finish of dark fruit and spice. This is a wine you can really sink your teeth into! It was slightly better on day 2. What a great example of Petite Sirah.

Here's what people are saying about our Insider Deals:
"Jon, this is a wonderful wine all around. You have become our go-to person for wonderful wines and wine values. Please keep up the excellent job that you're doing! Regards, a very satisfied customer. "
"I opened up our first bottle last weekend and was blown away. "
"Wow!! Just got my shipment. It is absolutely tremendous. "
"Hi Jon, Best thing I ever did is buy wine thru you...not been disappointed with any of them! Thank you SO MUCH!"
"Would you happen to be offering this one again anytime soon? I regret not buying more. This was exceptional!"
"I am seriously considering having the Insider Deals as my primary go-to. Why did I not do this sooner? Thank you"
"The only thing I have ever been disappointed in with an Insider Deal is that I didn't purchase more."
"I love this wine I bought from you!!!! Thanks for doing what do do!!!"
"This an absolutely amazing wine, Jon...You've outdone yourself!"
"Thanks Jon. We already drank all 6 of the first order so we were ecstatic to see you offering it again. My wife and I both love it."
"You are a man after my own heart. I have always looked for the best and least expensive wine and you just made it easier. Cheers!"
"Hi Jon, well, I did something people have warned about - bought 6 bottles and should have bought 12!"
"Have had nothing but great bottles since I started ordering your recommendations. Thanks so much! "
"We've gotten in on three of the deals and have been VERY happy with the value. I originally was going to do a wine club thing but the insider deal appeals to me much more."
"The shipping on the Insider Deals is another great part of the deal. We recently paid $27 to a winery in California to ship 6 bottles (same packaging as the insider deals)....yikes!"
"Just got my 6 bottles and having my first glass. WHY, WHY didn't I buy a case??!!"
"I really missed the boat by only getting four bottles of this offer last month. Should have bought least at a case."
"My wife and I have really enjoyed getting to know new wines (and better than we used to buy!) Thanks for what you do and providing this service!"
"Jon - you have to stop offering all of these amazing deals. My self discipline is fading fast!!"
"I recently took advantage of your offer. So glad I did, and now sorry I did not buy more (like all those quotes on your website!)"
"The wine is outstanding. I am so glad I bought a case."
" I only drink Reverse Wine Snob wine, it actually doesn't make sense to buy from a store. You don't get anything interesting, unique, and full of value otherwise."
"I am a Certified Specialist of Wine. I love your deals. You pick great wines!! Kudos to you for getting us great deals!"
"Wish I would have ordered more!! It was great. Looking back, I wish I didn’t open it at our annual pool party. It’s gone. **Sob**"

"Hi Jon, just had to let you know that I love this wine!!!! Thanks for doing what you do."
"I have purchased many times over the last several months and loved the wines!"
"Seriously amazing deal!!! I love a bold red, and Reverse Wine Snob delivered!!! Perfect for a rainy night!!"

"I have loved all my RWS deals, can't wait to get this one."
"I know that you don't need to have 'customers' email you every time they like a wine that you have suggested/rated, and I have enjoyed many of your recommendations. But this Tannat was spectacular! Wow! That was amazing!"
"I finally opened a bottle of this and it did not disappoint. Delicious!!!"
"Thanks for a great service! We’ve been loving your emails and wine deals!"
"This insider deal is a great wine!!! So glad I got it!!"
"My Insider Deal arrived just in time for my celebration tonight and it’s absolutely delicious! Cheers!"
