The Daredevil California Petite Sirah 2018

Mmm this is why I like Petite Sirah! Lots of dark fruit with a smooth finish. Great story on the bottle about how a Count from Europe immigrated to America. He became the first Sheriff of San Diego County then moved to Northern California to pursue grape growing. As legend has it, he was eaten by a crocodile while in Nicaragua. This wine honors his spirit as an entrepreneur, an explorer, a true daredevil at heart. — 5 days ago

Relentless Napa Valley Syrah Petite Sirah 2002

Wow. 18 years old and fresh. I kept looking at the label to make sure I didn’t pick up the wrong one. Beautiful, deep, and settled in so it’s no longer a fruit bomb. — 9 days ago

High Valley Vineyard

Petite Sirah 2011

Dark ruby in color with a short and cloudy, reddish rim.

Fruity nose of blackberries, cooked cherries, dried figs, licorice, oak, vanilla, vinaigrette, tobacco leaf, cocoa, coffee, black pepper, dark chocolates and spices.

Full bodied and smooth with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black cherries, raisins, dried figs, tobacco, wood, vanilla, cloves, coffee, chocolates, cola, light vinaigrette, peppercorn and spices.

Medium finish with fine grained tannins and chocolates.

This is a delicious 9 year old Petite Sirah from Lake County. Very tasty with a lot of chocolate notes. Nicely balanced with nice complexity.

Good right out of the bottle, and did not need much to open up. Peaking now.

Thank you Elvira for sharing.

Not from a great vintage, but this is showing very nicely now. Tasty, rich and delicious.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

$25 (current vintage).

Caduceus Cellars

Anubis Arizona Red Blend 2015

Tonight I have opened the 2015 Caduceus Anubis Red Blend. 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Cabernet Franc and 20% Petit Sirah from Wilcox, AZ hand picked from vineyards at 4300 feet and aged for 18 months in French Oak Casks.

On the nose there is black cherry, blackberry, black plum, black currant, black pepper, vanilla, cinnamon, alcohol and oak.

On the palate I am finding black cherry, blackberry, green bell pepper, black currant, licorice, baking spice and rich soil.

This wine is medium to full bodied with medium to + acidity and medium + fine tannins that lead into a medium to long dark fruit finish. My first Arizona wine and not too bad. The weekend starts tomorrow so please be safe and have a great time. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Machado Creek Vineyard Petite Sirah 2015

Big ole beefy bottle. Fancy. Does that mean it’s going to be good? Maybe that it should be aged long? Anyway, pretty cool etched dragonfly on the label. So dark ya can’t look through it in the glass. Smells lovely. Sweet alfalfa blossoms with olives and something musky. Has an herbal side as well. Fenugreek? Fennel? Forests? It’s lovely on the tongue. Savory. Is that bacon? Lamb and prune stew? Or popcorn seasoned with butter, smoked chiles and nutritional yeast? As savory of a red as I’ve every tried. The seasoned pork thing really hits on this. Hint of fruit. Maybe dried plum? Definitely slightly sweet good cured olives. Dark black licorice as well. Drying on the finish. Chewy as Chewbacca’s throaty yelp. If you like big Petite’s and you cannot lie this fits right in your wheelhouse. — 9 days ago
