Second night tasting- Plums and dark cherry, anise, vanilla, toast, and mild to medium tannins (tannins much stronger the first night) in a slightly peppery wine. Rather one dimensional with a short finish.

Started out ok, but drops off at the end. After a few glasses, I got very tired of the taste. Some good flavors in there, but I didn't feel it held up well enough.

Raspberry, blackberry, dried fruit and leather on the nose; more berries on the palate. Medium to full body.

A group of friends and I recently enjoyed a couple of bottles of the Guenoc Petite Sirah with Indian food. Before the food was served, I found the taste to be very pleasant, but really nothing more. Once I started eating however (Rogan Josh - lamb in a moderately spicy tomato based sauce), the wine completely came alive. It was a great match for the food and the quality was a nice surprise for the price.

Wine Tasting NotesWith aromas of blueberries, black pepper and spice, the Petite Sirah has lush flavors of raspberries and cocoa and perhaps a little cedar. The rich and chewy flavors in the middle lead to a long, soft finish.

Winemaker's Notes:

This elegant wine is dark, rich and concentrated with luscious blackberry, spice and licorice flavors. The unctuous, chewy tannins are a meal in the mouth, and the overall impression is one of balance. Serve with Osso Bucco or other hearty, meaty dishes like Cassoulet.
