Mockingbird Hill Petite Sirah 2006 wine review by (PB)
This Napa wine has a beautiful cranberry/purple hue with beautiful plummy and blackberry nose punctuated with spice but needs to warm up. (My ambient cellar holds at around 50 degrees this time of year...)
Palate--This wine is really level on the palate but has fairly tight fruit with wood. It is a fairly uncomplicated wine and drinks well by itself but pairs well with food in the way it is structured. It would do well with another two years in the bottle but for a Petite Sirah it is a versatile wine that will run you around $14, so raise a glass.
