I don't usually pair my wine with music, but this wine calls for two songs, Purple Haze by Jimi Hendrix and Purple Rain by Prince. I really wanted to mention Purple Rain, because that's one of my all time favorite songs, soundtracks, and movies. This Petite Sirah from Coquerel Wines in Calistoga, Califorina is so purple, it's almost black. The fruit flavors are equally dark: blackberry, blueberry, boysenberry, and plum. Add pepper, spice, and ample acidity and you have a total package Petite Sirah. You won't mind that your teeth are stained when you are finished sipping. This was a sample I didn't request, but do not regret receiving. If you love Petite Sirah, you will love this one. $39 direct from the winery.
