In the Glass
Brilliant, dark purple color.
The aromatics are very intense offering scents of black cherry and cassis with supporting notes of blueberry, raspberry, and mocha.
The palate confirms the nose delivering a red and black fruits-driven core with flavors of boysenberry and vanilla. The finish is long and lingering with chewy tannins.
Intensity & Texture
Full-bodied and nicely balanced with a opulent texture.
We are unabashed fans of Petite Sirah loving its round, fleshy fruit and decadent spice accents.
Considering the quality of winemaking and personality on display in the glass this wine represents a great value.
