4 great Wines for Winter

4. Darcie Kent Petite Sirah Madden Ranch (2008)

« Prev 4 of 4
Previously available for $13.99
Spicy with a touch of grass accenting the subtle wood spice and soft cooked plum , blackberry and licorice aromas of the nose. Broad and bright and rich with tart plum and candied blackberry fruit on entry. there are well managed, soft tannins here adding nice support though this never becomes thick or chewy. A touch of leather and earth adds some detail on the backend, where the tannins begin to become more assertive before they flow into the moderately long, soft and plump finish that shows a savory edge to its tart plum fruits. This is freshly fruited, clean and attractively pure and in need of a rare skirt steak. Not complicated, but not fussy. 87pts
