One of my favorites! Very rich and a perfect combination of tangy and sweet. Read more

Fruit forward with little acidity or tannins. Finish is short and a bit sweet. On the positive side it would work well as a group cookout wine. Read more

Tea and earth aromas dominate the nose along with some subtle plummy fruit and hints of cola. Big and broad in the mouth and texturally showing very well with excellent integration and richness. The flavors remain fairly fresh, if perhaps fading with a nice core of black cherry fruit supported by a hint of sweetness, though there’s enough acidity here to keep this lively in the mouth. The tannins are soft and chewy, and the fruit remains admirably rich in a plummy candied blackberry way right through the rather long finish. This is simple to be sure, and the sweetness becomes more apparent, but it’s rich and voluptuous and would go great with a burger. 84pts

Fruit-forward, insanely loveable Petite Sirah-based Red Wine. The minute you uncork the bottle, the boysenberry fruit leaps from your glass. With soft, supple tannins, this wine is great with food or without. Serve it at cellar temperature to allow the flavors to evolve in the glass. - WineryAcid: 0.63 g/100mlPH: 3.71Residual Sugar: 8.1 g/LAlcohol %: 13.5%

Created by the rock band Train, Save Me San Francisco Wine Company donates proceeds from the sale of their wines to Family House, which provides housing for families whose children are undergoing treatment at the UCSF Children's Hospital. This Petite Sirah is a bold, rich red that matches up beautifully to the spicy and exotic foods that band enjoys when they're traveling.
