This is a delicious Petite Sirah from Dry Creek Valley in California.
Big, bold and rich. Fruit forward and extracted.
Showing black and red fruits with cedar, vanilla, leather, earth, spices and peppercorn.
Dry on the palate with medium plus acidity and long legs.
Long finish with round tannins and tangy raspberries.
Very enjoyable by itself or with food. A great sipping wine.
Nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel and complexity.
Needs 3 hours to open up properly, and show the tannins and complexity. Even smoother after 5 hours. Spicy and entertaining.
A delicious wine to sip on by itself.
I had this vintage last year and it is still very enjoyable.
