Wine Review: This midnight blue colored Petite Sirah from Napa is a steal! It opens with an attractive blueberry and boysenberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium to full bodied, balanced and very smooth for a Petite Sirah. The flavor profile is a tasty blueberry with notes of black cherry and boysenberry. There is nicely integrated oak in the background as well. The finish is quite dry and its dusty tannins are rather sticky and linger for quite some time. This Petite Sirah would pair well with a well-marbled ribeye. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: This 2012 Petite Sirah is loaded with depth, superior concentration and a multitude of layers. It possesses aromatics of blackberry jam, plums, violets, and hints of brown sugar and nutmeg followed by raspberries, cloves and smoky oak on the palate.
