    Varietal: Petite Sirah

    Style: Big & Bold

    Item no. 102993

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Almost opaque in color, the 2006 Petite Sirah exhibits a broad, rich nose of blueberries, sweet toasty oak, and mineral notes. It is abundantly lush, mouth-filling, and weighty on the palate. Typical of the vintage, it exhibits broad, fruit-forward flavors with pleasing fruit tannins. This wine begs for rich grilled or barbeque pork or beef.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2006 Petite Sirah looks like blue/purple-colored motor oil. Seriously intense notes of blueberries, blackberries, camphor, and flowers are accompanied by a boatload of tannins, but they are relatively civilized in this big, full-bodied wine. It should soften over the next decade, hold steady for another 10-15 years, and still be alive at age 30.
