Wine Review: This very dark ruby colored Petite Sirah from Miro was the clear winner in our recent blind tasting. It opens with an attractive blueberry bouquet with hints of earth, black pepper and menthol. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and very smooth. The flavor profile is a very tasty Acai berry with notes of blueberry and hints of vanilla and milk chocolate. The finish is dry and flavors drift away nicely. The panel suggested pairing this gem with a filet mignon or grilled venison at your favorite steak house. Enjoy - KWGTP
Winemaker Notes: The shortest way to describe the wine would be “dark and delicious.” Undoubtedly Petite Sirah in its core, but with refined and balanced tannin and surprising for Petite Sirah—softness. Loads of blueberry and blackberry on the nose followed by toasty oak, cinnamon, brown sugar and dark molasses. The mouth feel is big and juicy, extracted but not heavy, finishing with fresh acidity and sense of balance. Cheers!
