J. Lohr Tower Road Petite Sirah 2008
Opaque, deep purple with youthful magenta hues, the J. Lohr Tower Road Vineyard Petite Sirah has dark, brooding aromas of blackberry, black currant and rhubarb pie with a bouquet of dark chocolate, black licorice and brown spices. The flavors are reminiscent of the aromas, with dark chocolate taking the fore, with a huge, plump mouthfeel and long, savory finish. Tower Road Vineyard Petite Sirah, given its size and structure, would pair well with roasted venison, elk or beef with a lingonberry reduction sauce.
Editorial Reviews for J. Lohr Tower Road Petite Sirah
Violets, plum, caramel and spice greet the nose. This is fairly spicy with some nice fudgy undertones. A bit round on entry, then turning rather focused. This is fairly big framed but well-balanced with well-managed tannins and integrated acidity that keeps the wine lively in the mouth. The flavors are rather earthy with plum and blackberry tones that extend nicely onto the finish, which shows a bit of coffee, oak and spice; but it’s all quite well-balanced with a hint of black pepper on the finale. 88pts
