Nothing Petite here...

Inky in color with a purple rim.

Beautiful nose of blackberries, dried figs, raisins, sweet cherries, cooked strawberries, vanilla, cedar, light earth, light vegetables, licorice, spices, dark chocolates, coffee, bell pepper, green herbs and black pepper.

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

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, sweet cherries, fig jam, licorice, vanilla, wood, chocolates, caramel, alcohol, dark roasted coffee, spices and peppercorn.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cranberries.

This wonderful Petite Sirah from California is drinking nicely now, but will be better in a year or two.
Showing nice complexity with a great mouthfeel. Well balanced and enjoyable by itself.

A great sipping wine. It is still showing some vegetable notes, that will go away with time, and some alcohol.

Needs an hour to open up, but good right out of the bottle. Rich, extracted and a little Jammy. This is just yummy.

14.9% alcohol by volume.

Beautiful violet color. Sweet and inviting aroma of dark berries and brown sugar. Medium body, leathery tannins, lots of plum and raisins. Can be drank right away even though is 2015. Good depth for how young this wine is. About $23. Great value!!!! Will definitely buy again.
