Rattlesnake Ridge Petite Syrah 2016

@Delectable Wine Just FYI you have a bug in your “where are you” application. Location shows up with some weird suggestions.

14.8% ABV.
Great wine!
True to variety this is brimming with juicy black fruits.
Dark as midnight in the glass.
Nicely concentrated but with noticeable tannins on the palate, perhaps showing a tiny bitterness and (for my taste) lacking a bit of overall stuffing.
While I normally opt to age most of my PS I think this is one to enjoy now or over the next few years for the immediate juiciness.
And I will of course save a bottle for 20 years down the line....

A petite Petite is rare. Nice to sip one with some crunch instead of punch. — 14 days ago

I really liked this. The bouquet was so unique! I swear I smelled something tropical, like a banana coconut ice cream. Definitely will buy this again. — 8 days ago

Napa Valley Petite Sirah 2012

Inky, purply-black on opening, with an immediately alluring bouquet of violets and licorice. The palate is full of black fruits and is quite open with minimal air. There are plenty of tannins lurking here in the background, but they’re well hidden behind the impressive fruit and only really make their presence known in the finish. Very tasty now, but certainly no rush by any means. — 16 days ago

So....@India Okoh wants to get all the labels and model them in SA. I’m down.

Deep purplish red. Fruit forward nose with some violets, baking spices and blackberries. Full bodied with medium tannins (6/10). Great earthiness on the palate with black and blue fruits, spices and a little herbal. Long and lingering finish. Drink till 2026.

BBQ & Zin night!

@Delectable Wine : This is the Onesta Petite Syrah. I didn’t see it in the database.

Really unique wine from a small producer. For the makeup, it was shockingly smooth. Very dark and inky with blackberry, cassis, underripe blueberries and black pepper. Stiff tannin but it softens towards the finish. Potpourri and lavender too. Very cool.

Refugio Ranch

Santa Ynez Valley Petite Sirah 2015

A fantastic, bold wine. It starts with a blend of dark fruit and earth. Gradually, these notes fade and a metallic finish emerges. It's a tad on the acidic side, but a great find! — 16 days ago
