Sipping Fine Wine

Suisun (su-soon) Valley, which lies to the Southeast of Caymus and a 40-minute drive. Dark Ruby with aromas of dark fruit and exotic spices on this Petite Sirah. On the palate flavors of blackberry and ripe blueberry with smoky oak, herb notes and dusty drying smooth tannins. Well balanced on a long finish ending with a mineral tang. A Wagner Winner!

Doing a wine pairing at Carrabbas with Caymus wines. This one is a bit spicy for me especially with Italian sausage and rigatoni, would be much better without a spicy pairing.

First reaction is modest nose and too much alcohol which was confirmed with a harshness on tasting. Sign Ivan the tannins hiding rip plum and cherry. Probably should have waited 3-5 years. An 8.3 at this stage so over priced.

A great Petit Sirah from the Wagner family. Showing black fruits with chocolate notes, wood, vanilla, cloves, tobacco, coffee, Coke, spices and black pepper.

Full bodied and bold with medium acidity and nice legs.

Dry and extremely fruity on the palate. Might have some RS.

Nice length on the finish with fine tannins.

Big bold and beautiful.

92 points.

Dark purple in color with a short purple rim.

Great fruity nose with black currants, blackberries, cherries, figs, licorice, earth, raisins, vanilla, sweet oak, spices, chocolates, mocha, coffee and cinnamon.

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

Dry on the palate with blackberries, plums, cooked cherries, oak, vanilla, licorice cloves, spices, chocolates, tobacco, mocha, coke, earth, light vegetables and black pepper.

Long finish with round tannins.

A great Petite Sirah from the house of the Wagner family. Very fruity and enjoyable by itself or with food.

Needs a couple of hours to open up properly and show some tannins, but yummy right out of the bottle.

Showing nice complexity and a great mouthfeel. Big bold and beautiful.

Would benefit from another few years, to mature properly, and get more complex.

Easy drinking so watch out.

I paired it with small appetizers.
