Wine Review: This pitch black colored Petite Sirah from Lodi opens with a blackberry and black licorice bouquet with hints of vanilla. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced, nicely structured and juicy. The flavor profile is a tasty mild red raspberry with notes of cola, blackberry and oak. The finish is dry and its fruit flavors are nicely prolonged. The panel suggested pairing this very good Petite Sirah with a gorgonzola burger or a strip steak. Enjoy - KWGTP
Winemaker Notes: A whiff of violet lures you in, then turns all dark chocolate and summer blackberry in the mouth. Opulent fruit and full bodied tannins, this wine is down right pretty.
