4 great Wines for Winter

3. Summers Petite Sirah (2009)

Previously available for $32.00
Dark and earthy on the nose with aromas of macerating flowers and damp tobacco layered over a base of black cherry and blackberry fruit framed with some well judged vanilla and wood spice. Smooth, polished and yet not detailess in the mouth with lovely bright yet integrated acids and soft, supple yet obvious tannins. there’s a streak of dark chocolate early on the palate and little grilled meat followed by pretty big dried black cherry and black plummy fruit that has an edge of spiciness to it. The plums really pop on the backend and fade somewhat quickly on the tight finish which shows plenty of tannin but nice freshness and even a hint of minerality as well. Well balanced, and pretty complete this should age nicely over the next 5-8 years. 91pts
