Parducci Petite Sirah 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

The Mendocino Wine Company was founded in 2004 with the formation of a partnership between the families of Tom and Tim Thornhill and Paul Dolan. This partnership purchased the historic Parducci Wine Cellars in Mendocino County, California. Parducci is extremely conscious of their environmental responsibilities. From tree-free papers and soy based inks to biodiesel tractors and organic grape growing, Parducci is creating a model of quality and environmental sustainability for other wineries to follow. The 'True Grit' Petite Sirah's heady aromas of ripe fruit, white pepper and vanilla are followed by an intense flavour of fresh blackberry, dark chocolate, pepper and caramel.

A nice note of cured meats with a strong tea note then some spicy wood tones and plenty of white pepper tinged black plum and crystallized black berry fruits and even an edge of dried rose. Inky on the palate with an extracted feel up front. Nicely tannic with good supporting acids and a definite milk chocolate and toast top note to the black fruits. This thins out noticeably on the mid-palate turning a bit dilute yet redeems itself with a moderately long finish with a bit of spice complimenting lurking blackberry fruits with a lovely brisk mineral finale that cleanses the mouth. Not fruity and eminently drinkable 87pts Barbecue Quaffing Value!

Big, fruity, almost licorice like on the nose. Incredibly fruity and powerful - its rich sweet licorice like with stewed blackberries, plums and prunes. The fruit overpowers most else, so if fruits your thing go get this wine! Medium acidity and spicy tannins help balance the wine out.

aromas of lox, blackberries, bubble gum, cranberries on the mouth, fairly tannic, solid body.

big bold summertime grilling wine. dry and acidic which begs for a hunk of meat. I had it with a guacomole cheddar burger with chipotle sauce. the midpalate is the highlight. if it were like the finish this would get a 5.

Sweet bubblegum nose with blueberries and cream. Nice blend of bright fruitiness (blueberries, strawberries and banana) with a darker undercurrent of grit and dirt. Spicy finish that moves into licorice. Nice, and the first time I've had a Petite Sirah in a while.

The Parducci 2006 Petite Sirah received 90pts in the Wine Enthusiast and was listed as #22 on their list of 100 Best Buys of 2009! "This is classic Parducci Petite Sirah, a near-perfect example of the variety. Dry and robust, yet smooth, it has complex flavors of wild blackberries, blueberries, molasses, dark chocolate, bacon and peppery spices. With beautiful balance, it is a great value" (Wine Enthusiast, November 2009).

Petite Sirah is a Mendocino specialty, and Parducci was one of the first wineries to bottle this varietal. Dark ruby in color with aromas of cherry, blackberry, mint, and chocolate, this big red's got spicy, dark fruit flavors and supple tannins.
