Wine Review: This opaque and black ink colored Petite Sirah from the Dry Creek Valley opens with a fragrant blackberry bouquet with hints of blueberry pie and toasted oak. On the palate, this wine is medium to full bodied, balanced, velvety and fruit forward. The flavor profile is boysenberry with notes of red cherry and hints of pomegranate, mild minerality and gentle French oak. The finish is dry and it’s a bit subtle for a Petite Sirah. Enjoy - KWGTP
Winemaker Notes: Dense and intense color; richly layered with complex flavors of blackberry and plum with expressive brambly spice. Ripe focused tannins. Bright acidity, and a lingering finish.
