For lovers of big, extracted red wines, packed with flavor and fine tannins, this is the variety for you!
Lots of exotic spice, wood and hazelnut aromas lead to a rich, supple, polished core of harmonious wild berry and blackberry fruit. It's so refined and elegant you'll be surprised that this is a Petite Sirah, though the tannins on the finish will remind you of this grape's chewy personality.
The 2003 Petite Sirah is a classic. Opaque purple to the rim, with a big, sweet nose of blackberries, white flowers, crushed rocks, vanilla, and smoke, ferociously tannic but enormously concentrated and extracted, this wine needs 5-6 years of bottle age and will handsomely repay two decades of aging.
Bright, full ruby. Captivating aromas of blackberry, blueberry, crushed pepper, iron and smoked meat. Densely packed, sweet and chewy, with explosive, juicy fruit of noteworthy purity; a bit less jammy than the nose suggests. Finishes with huge but sweet tannins and a lingering flavor of chocolate truffle. Boasts superb depth of fruit flavor for petite sirah.
