Girard Petite Sirah Napa Valley 2011
Not as dark in the glass as a lot of Petites. Brambly, woody nose. Surprisingly not as full-bodied on the palate as I might expect. Some cherry flavors, very minimal tannin. Some tartness, but not much. Really an unusual Petite. US$19.79 at Costco in Chino Hills.
A nice wine. Good brambles of berry on the nose and palate. Tart...as most Petite Syrahs are. Light...and lacking a little backbone IMHO. Good....but needs just a little more back bone to give it the thrust that it needs. Cheers!
