I just love Petite Sirah. It’s thick, powerful and in my face. I also like delicate wines that ooze class and reek of finesse. Tonight though is for the unabashed. This wine is a serious dark shade of purple, a warning shot of what is to come. Blackberry and creosote on the nose, in a good way. Dark fruits and a jammy plum element hit me right off the bat. The grape is full on with tannins and juicy acidity. This is night 2 of this bottle and it is drinking beautifully. Balanced with tons of potential make this a stellar wine. Retailing at $12 it gets a solid 90 points from me for its depth and complexity. You know what that means folks- 5 stars! I am in need of a few more bottles for a dark and stormy nice with some chili, or a beef Bourguignon. Cellaring for another 5 years would reveal a treasure. Salut….
