Clayhouse Vineyard Petite Sirah Paso Robles 2006

Member Review by CH Stacey:

Fabulous Petite Sirah, just released. Great black fruit, blackberries and black plum with some hints of pepper on the nose. Very supple fruit on the palate with a smooth finish (especially for a Petite Sirah). Still a little young, tastes even better when decanted. Has won a number of awards already, including the Critics Challenge Wine of the Year for 2009

Perfect balance of the stone fruits and herbaceous bite. Delightful. A real favorite.

loads of blue raspberry candy flavors as well as on the nose. like those blue icees. lots of black pepper and alcohol heat as well as stewed red fruits. I doubt the 14.5% is accurate. Very tasty overall though. definitely benefits from a decant.

Enjoyed the rich dried plum and blueberries taste with a little grit. I was surprised and delighted to find the sweet honey and floral smell. Slow and smooth with a slight lingering burn in the aftertaste. Definitely would try it again.

The wine has a solid tannin core, black pepper and blackberry pie aromas, and a hint of cranberry. The Mourvedre adds a slight gamey note, the Grenache adds some bright fruit, and the Syrah imparts a touch of floral spice.

This Petite Sirah comes from some of the oldest plantings in Paso Robles. The wine has good tannins, it's rich in dark fruit of black plums with spicy black pepper, brown sugar and vanilla.
