Library Vineyard Petite Syrah 2007

Monday night bbq with friend from out of town. Went with awaze pork tenderloin and fixings. Sorry not sorry, coulda waited many years but tonight was the night. Silky, fruity, nice acid, a little raspberry, still plenty of tannin. — 11 days ago

Dubious Petite Sirah 2017

2017 vintage opened 9-14-19. Enjoyed with a heavy marinara-vegetable pasta. This wine was young but has great potential with another 18 months in the bottle. Chunky sediment. Lots of inky purple color with notes of green bell pepper and chocolate. Would recommend. — 5 days ago

Haymaker Vineyard Petite Sirah 2013

Immediate throwback to blackberry picking as a child. Delicious (and weirdly nostalgic) rush of forest fruits. — 9 days ago

Pets Petite Sirah 2016

Very enjoyable Paso Robles 100% Petite Sirah. Plenty of red fruit and nice balance. Medium bodied and is surprisingly complex for inherent lower alcohol and being 100% PS. This is a great example of petite sirah, kudos to #FieldRecordings — a day ago

Machete Napa Valley Red Blend 2015

Found another ‘15, a blend of Petite Sirah, Syrah & Grenache and aged for 10 months on French oak (40% new). Deep Ruby with aromas of black fruits, cedar and sweet spice. On the palate, ripe plums, jammy blueberries and sweet cherry with slight oak and vanilla spice, pours like syrup. Lingering finish, good length allowing the soft tannins to open in your mouth. Good structure, great mouthfeel, ending with pure fruit and dash of minerality, drinks well now. Produced with 12 different labels. Wow! — 13 days ago

Livermore Valley Petite Sirah 2016

Best wine I’ve had from Livermore in years. Wine Enthusiast gave it 93, which seems generous. But I’ll happily give it a 92, and if comparing only to other Petite Sirahs it would be higher. — 16 days ago

Clarksburg Petite Sirah 2017

A worthy successor to Mr. Bruno’s superlative 2016 vintage, this is a big but smooth wine. The silky, cool mouthfeel has pleasant hints of black pepper. Blueberry and cherry fruits burst forward, and there is a very nice tingly finish. Bellissimo! — 12 days ago


Hayne Vineyard Petite Syrah 2012

The rich, rustic Petite fruit has settled into some early adulthood maturity, striking a delectable balance from nose to tail. Surely has decades of life left but who can (or should) wait? — 19 days ago
