The Deputy (Thank You Bottle)

Petite Sirah

The story of our founder is as long as it is colorful.

One of California's first sheriffs, Agoston Haraszthy was elected the Sheriff of San Diego County in 1850. He built the first jail and served two exciting years before moving north to pursue "purple gold" and the perfect terroir for fine wines. He found it in Sonoma County where he established Buena Vista Winery in 1857.

Tasting Notes

Our 2019 The Deputy Petite Sirah is a deep dark purple.


Fragrant aromas of raspberry, blackberry and a note of pencil shavings. 


Warm baked cherry pie flavors mingle with dark cocoa and a touch of bright strawberry. Well-balanced acid and plush tannins lead to a long and lingering finish.

Vintage Notes: 

It is our founders' legacy that inspired this wine and the work of sheriffs everywhere that we honor with its release. We are proud to bring you this delicious 20I8 The Deputy Petite Sirah - A Boisset Collection exclusive crafted by Jean-Charles and our Buena Vista winemaking team.
