I wish people would stop identifying this wine as sweet. Technically there is no R.S. It is very fruity and blueberry forward which I think is confusing for some palettes. It does show a bit acidity and light tannins which can taste unbalanced. It is on the cheaper end of the scale and is standard for what it is. Pair it with a fatty protein which will help the over abundance of fruit tones

A surprisingly good, fruit forward petite sirah. Juicy but not too sweet. Perfect table wine. -2016 vintage

Too sweet, chilling didn't help, but not bad in cooking. Great price but won't be purchasing again.
