Beautiful aromas of blackberry, chocolate, and spice on the nose
Rich, plush texture on the palate
Finish of dark berries, anise, cocoa, and trailing sweet spice notes
Nicely done Petite Sirah! This wine is not big and clumsy, nor is it oddly tannic and herbal- two opposite and unfortunate outcomes this varietal can sometimes yield. Rather, this wine has richness and balance with beautiful aromas and flavors.
I enjoyed this bottle with friends at a restaurant in Charleston, SC. The wine list price was $63 (the retail price is around $30). Remember this is not Syrah. This is a flavor profile closer to Zinfandel. Check it out- and raise a glass!
