    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2008 DAOU Petite Sirah is dark plum purple, with lots of young, bright, ripe black cherry and berry fruit aromas with honeysuckle, prune, and traces of oak, butter, vanilla, and cedar. The mid-palate is clean and fresh with hints of black pepper spice and smoke. Powerful, but without intense tannins this is a wine that maintains exemplary varietal character. The addition of 5% Viognier adds a lovely structure, softening and integrating the wine throughout the tasting experience.

    Pair with grilled foods, pepper crusted tuna, assorted grilled vegetables such as eggplant, zucchini and tomatoes.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Opaque purple. Sexy aromas of dark berry preserves, violet and smoky Indian spices, with a mounting vanilla quality. Lush and sappy on entry, then firmer in the mid-palate, offering powerful dark berry and bitter cherry flavors and good spine. The sweet finish features very good smoky persistence. This is more polished than most petite sirahs.
