Ledson Lake County Diamond Ridge Series Petite Sirah 2005 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

Blackberry, black licorice, and vanilla on the nose

Full bodied, rich, and smooth on the palate

Finishes with dark berries, cocoa, and splash of pepper

A friend brought this wine over recently, which was a real treat. This wine would not be available on shelves where I live.

Lake County is producing more and more good wines, and Ledson found some nice Petite Sirah grapes there to put into this bottling. It's dark and fairly dense, with rich aromas and flavors. The long finish is smooth and silky, with a splash of pepper to keep your attention. It retails for $34 but is not widely available. Raise a glass!
