Hybrid Petite Syrah 2007 wine review by (PB)
Nice dark hue you would expect of the grape;
Bouquet--big black fruit aromas of dark berry and ripe plum with some woody notes;
Palate--Big rich berry fruit bomb with some touches of milk chocolate, a relaxed presence and slightly textured. Tannins are gentle if not nearly plush with a little spine still left in them. Finishes well enough.
Here's the get a grip factor-- I paid $7 for this wine which is 80% Petite Syrah from Lodi made by Peltier Station using sustainable growing techniques.
I wouldn't mind another couple bottles of this to serve to friends who like fruit forward, bold, in your face red wine. This fits the bill so raise a glass.
