Huntington Petite Syrah Ca 2005

Member Review by dynowine:

A smooth and tame petit sirah that needs about 60 min air time or decanting to elevate the nose, fruit, acid, and tannin. Most intense at the front half of the mouth with a thick layer of off-dry ripe fruit (blueberry, dark plum, perhaps some blackberry) and hints of black pepper, chocolate, caramel, and spice. A little weaker mid-palate and in the finish with acid and tannin low relative to the fruit (some may like the lower acid .. alcohol also lowish at 14%). Not too complex. Good QPR, a straightforward wine likely to be good with BBQ fare or at a party.
