Four Vines Petite Syrah Paso Robles the Heretic 2006
This petite syrah is a full bodied, silky smooth wine. Full of berries and some chocolate aromas.
White pepper nose. Acidic attack with notes of strawberry keep the start of the wine very light. The mid palate has more weight and it finishes on some solid tannins with a lot of pepper. Very nice.
a big boy, smoky, but it didn't completely blow me away in this price range. I prefer the other two I've had in this series. for some reason, the nose immediately made me think of maple syrup.
Barnyard notes over Dark Fruit nose, tart dark berries in the mouth followed by chocolate, spice and black pepper. And elevated wood/pith levels -- existing in all the Petite I've tasted so far.
This is a very big, well rounded, complex petite sirah. A lot of fruit up front and a nice long finish. One of my favorites.
