HW Estate Grown Lodi Petite Sirah 2015

Deep purple in color with a short purplish rim.

Fruity nose with blackberries, blueberries, sweet plums, light earth, vanilla, licorice, eucalyptus, spices, tobacco, peppercorn, milk chocolates, vegetables, herbs and black pepper.

Full bodied, smooth and creamy, with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, cherries, blueberries, wood, earth, vanilla, molasses, medium roast coffee, black pepper, spices, milk chocolates and cola.

Long finish with soft tannins, cherries and spices.

This is a delicious Petite Sirah from Lodi California. Well balanced and fruit forward with nice complexity. Showing a soft and smooth mouthfeel that I did not expect from a Petite Sirah at this age.

An easy drinking, bold and jammy red wine, with high alcohol, so watch out...

Better after 30 minutes in a decanter.

This is a good sipping wine, all by itself or with food. I paired it with Gouda cheese which went perfect together.

Grapes are hand-picked. Aged in American Oak barrels for 10 months.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

$22.

Lodi Cabernet Sauvignon

Beautiful purple color, fruity yet not too sweet in a nice smooth finish. It's not the Bold peppery cab I like and that's why I gave it a little lower score. But it's still a very very good one โ€” 15 days ago
