3 Months Aged Bourbon Barrel Zinfandel 2019

Wasn’t sure what to expect. First taste after immediately opening was oddly alcoholic and tasted a bit like the ocean. After sitting the wine became complex and had notes of caramel, vanilla and fruit. Got better as it sat so best to open and let it air before serving. — 15 days ago

Napa Valley Petite Sirah 2012

A project between Doug Shafer and Elias Fernandez. I think I’ve had this for at least five years and have never known the ideal time to open it. I don’t drink much petite sirah, but when TX barbecue is the food on the table, I figured this would work, and it did.

48 months in barrel! Inky in the glass with aromatics of potpurri, fresh squeezed dark berries, mixed berry cobbler, and espresso. Expecting a brash profile on the palate, I was greeted by a rather tame (albeit juicy) style which had great mid-palate depth. Freshly squeezed raspberries, black raspberries, blueberries, red and black currant, hint of peppered rhubarb and dark chocolate. Compared to other PS wines I’ve enjoyed (Switchback Ridge, Vincent Arroyo) this is less chocolate and spice driven, but the juicy and rich mid palate is there in spades. Oak tannin at the finish but not harsh. Paired really well with TX brisket and sauce. Seems to be in a good window now, but PS always seems to me like it can hold for a while, so no rush.

I love PS, but really only ever drink Grgich PS. Not something I have very often either.

I have a few Pets sitting around, waiting for the right food. Sounds like the ideal pairing.
