Colorado Petite Sirah 2012

Cheers to my first wine from Colorado.

Inky in color with a brick rim.

On the nose blueberries, currants, oak, light vanilla, licorice, cloves, herbs, Mediterranean spices, dark chocolates, vinaigrette, earth, herbs and peppercorn. Really nice nose.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with blueberries, ripped cherries, red currants, light wood, cooked strawberries, spices, earth, herbs, light vinaigrette, light vegetables and peppercorn.

Nice length on the finish with firm tannins and tangy cranberries.

This is a very tasty Petite Sirah from Colorado. Interesting and nicely balanced. Showing nice structure.

This 8 year old is good by itself or with food. Interesting and engaging.

This Single Vineyard needed time to open up. I gave it 90 minutes to bring out the tannins, which I really enjoyed. After 4 hours of airtime, the tannins get much finer.

I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

Grapes are grown in the Grand Valley AVA and fermented on their own yeast. Aged in American oak barrels. Unfiltered. Vegan. No sulfites added.

15% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

$75.

2017. Really enjoying this smooth petite sirah that gained complexity...especially at the price I paid for it. Would easily fit into most folks weeknight rotation. — 11 days ago

Deep, inky purple in the glass. Brilliant nose of black cherries, blackberries, and vanilla. This wine is huge. It is silky and big-bodied with notes of black fruit. The finish is long and beautiful. Great with roast beast 🤣

North Coast Petite Sirah 2015

Ah, the Yorkville Highlands... more than just the fabled place where I totaled my car last fall. Those rocky hillsides produce some sensational juice and this wine is no exception. Inky and hedonistic AF, but pulls it off with elegance, tannic structure and enough vibrancy to elevate this wine far beyond guilty pleasure. And besides, what else would you want with a bacon cheese burger & onion rings?
Blueberry coulis and black pepper fade into violets and warm spice on the finish. Definitely opened this bottle too early but have no regrets. I look forward to seeing how bottle
#2 evolves over the next few years. All hail, Theodora, Queen of Petite Sirah!

Definitely a big boy with a ton of black fruit liqueur, violet, and graphite. But there was still a sense of freshness. — 10 days ago

Yolo County Petite Sirah 2017

It’s dark. Black-purple. Slightly edged in red. Nose is heady. Stewed fruits and dark unsweetened chocolate. Moss. Wet moss in there too. And some herbal extract. Not sure which. Flavor is rich. Slightly ‘sweet’ or fruity. Dark, ripe stone fruits. Plenty of acid cuts through though. Not stain the teeth and dry the tongue tannic as some Petite Sirah tends towards. There’s a smokey, savory element in there too. This is great. A big red, but one with elegance and style. — 7 days ago

Nice little gem we found in the in-laws cellar. This has aged nicely. Little jammy-ness to it still with some softer pepper notes. Nice. — 4 days ago

Lot 674 Field Blend Mendocino County Syrah Petite Sirah 2017

This dark wine has a wonderful Rhônish nose - blue and black berries, vanilla highlights, a bit of meat - while the palate is deep and rich with great structure and balance. The finish is long and serves as a reminder of a great sip. It’s kinda hard to believe that it sells for less than 15 bucks.
