Girard Napa Valley Petite Sirah 2012 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

Wild berries, bramble, and smoky notes on the nose

Full bodied and dense

Dark plum, black tea, and herbs layered on the finish


I always enjoy finding a good Petite Sirah. When made well, it's a varietal that shows incredible density and depth along with a bit of rustic charm. This wine is a stellar example from Girard, and it has interesting layers that evolve in the glass with some time. Pair with red meat or a hearty sauce, and give it plenty of air. For $25, this is fairly priced and easy to recommend. Raise a glass!
