David Bruce Petite Sirah Central Coast 2000
Stretching in a narrow band from Santa Barbara to the San Francisco Bay,the Central Coast region is characterized by the cooling influences of the Pacific Ocean.These grapes come from several vineyards in Paso Robles and southern Monterey.The resulting components display notable differences,some exuding bright,spice-tinged fruit while others are jammy,earthy and dense.The blend in many ways exceeds the sum of these parts,offering blackberry,blueberry and white pepper aromas,with a supple and balanced feel coming from our gentle handling of the fruit.Limiting the influence of new oak allows the fruit to shine through,making this wine versatile with foods,and ready to drink now.
Deep reddish purple. Light toasty oak w/delicate fruir of black and blue berries on the nose. Medium weight with light sweet front palate adn overall dryness. Soft tannins that support the body well and a nice overall lushness of blue fruit and light spice. Very enjoyable [NR]
Chocolate sweet nose. Inky color. Big flavor, hollow mid-range. Mod T&A. Grassy, spicy, hot finish.
