Cameron Hughes Petite Sirah Lodi Lot 70 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Notes: Broodingly deep, inky purple hue. The color of this wine displays the distinctive varietal uniqueness of Petite Sirah and exhibits on the nose black licorice, cassis, and a horde of black fruit aromas. The black fruits on the nose follow through sweet blackberry and currant on first taste. Blackberry, chocolate, and hints of spicy Hungarian oak linger on the mid-palate, with jammy blueberry/plum on the finish that is assured to thrill your senses. This wine screams for red meat ... pair with lamb or filet mignon, and your taste buds will thank you! Cameron Confidential: The parcels for this Petite blend were assembled as fairly raw material last spring from one of the best-known Petite Sirah producers in Lodi and put back into oak barrels (80% French, 20% Hungarian, 50% new) for the final year. The result is a monster Petite Sirah with evolved tannin structure and remarkable drinkability for a young Petite. With about two months in the bottle it is over bottle shock but swinging gently from side to side, showing more oak one week and then more tannin the next. It should be fairly well settled in by the time it reaches you.

I'm on my third bottle (not all at once--how would I type this!) of this, but I am paying a lot less than retail. How does $5 sound? If you can find this, and you like PS, you'll like it. Big firm tannins to peel the fat off your teeth. (Vegetarians might like it, but they won't really get the full effect.) Deep, dark fruit under a smoky, leathery front end. Not one for the ages, or necesarily for aging, but good now.
