One of the most robust red wines you’re likely to run across is Petite Sirah.

Grown primarily in California, Petite Sirah is a French variety that is a cross of Syrah and Peloursin, an obscure grape. It was discovered in the 1860s by botanist François Durif, and the grape can go by “Petite Sirah” or “Durif.”
