Very zin-like in its sweet juiciness. Dark blueberries and raspberries on the palate. This is very hedonistic with a dessert wine feel. The finish contains some key lime pie. I would not guess this was petite sirah in a blind tasting. I decided to pair this with beef tortellini and marinara sauce and it went really well.

While the classic berry aromas and tastes come through clearly in this Petite Sirah, I was most surprised by two aspects. First, on the nose there is a hint of sea-air. Even more wonderful, it is followed by a distinctly present salted-caramel taste which makes it, in my limited experience, quite unique and wonderful delicious.


Winemaker's Notes:

The 2006 vintage was a good balanced growing year with good rain during the previous winter and an extended ripening season. Crop loads were average for crop loads. This enabled the vine to ripen the characters along with the sugar for balance.

Tasting Notes:

NOSE: Dark plumb, Raspberry, Black cherry, and blue berry introduce this wine to the senses with hints of licorice, smoke, and leather. MOUTH: Bright fruit of Raspberry introduce the pallet to the darker fruit characters of briery blackberry, cassis, and blueberry leading into rich velvety textures. FINISH: A wonderful medium length finish with silky textures of leather, smoke, and bakers chocolate round out the wine.
