Food Pairings for David Bruce Petite Sirah Central Coast
Ugh. While I've really enjoyed David Bruce's Estate Petite Sirah, this one was over-extracted with an astringent finish for me. I gave it a chance to open up, but it never did, so I didn't finish the bottle.
A fun pepper taste with the usual cast of characters of blackberry and plum. A word of caution though, you will have purple teeth after drinking this one.

Great example of the varietal at an affordable price. An elegant wine to suit many different occasions - goes equally well with a nice meal or a quaff on the beach.
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.

External Reviews for David Bruce Petite Sirah Central Coast
"Selected from vineyards primarily in the southern parts of Monterey County and Paso Robles. This wine displays intense fruity aromas of raspberry and blueberry. Full
Good things are happening at David Bruce winery and as they say, ldquo;the proof is in the puddingrdquo; or in this case, the Petite Syrah. Balance and flavor are the main components I look for in a wine and this baby struts its stuff! The color is deep and inky encircled with a violet aura. Aromatics are perfumed, reminiscent of loganberry and spice mdash; in the mouth the fruit is ripe and jammy, enhanced with sharp focused flavors that are endowed with considerable weight and tannin. This wine is a major leaguer and would easily make the all-star team.
Opaque purple. Moderately full-bodied. Highly extracted. Quite tannic. Black cherries, vanilla. Rich, peppery, explosively fruity aromas follow through to a thick, flavorsome palate with a textured mouthfeel and relatively supple finish, despite the impressive tannins levels.
Marked by well-focused, stewed plum and beefy cherry and wild berry fruit, itrsquo;s notably smooth for a young Petite. Firms up on the finish, where the tannins show a grittier, earthier side. An excellent value. Drink now through 2008.
Dark, ripe and plush, with herb, black cherry, pepper and meaty notes, plus a dash of vegetable, finishing with supple tannins. Best from 2000 through 2004.
Also fairly-priced, the 1999 Petite Syrah Central Coast must include Grenache in the blend given its notes of kirsch intermixed with cassis. With loads of fruit, medium to full body, and a solidly delineated finish with sweet tannin, this excellent 1999 is the most precocious and flattering of this quartet.
The grapes come from several vineyards in Paso Robles and southern Monterey; as a result, the wine displays both bright, spice-tinged fruit and jammy, earthy density. Lush with blackberry, blueberry and white pepper spice, Brucersquo;s Central Coast bottling is not overly tannic. Unlike many Petite Syrahs that require years of patience, it can be drunk now.
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.
