Familiar deep dark petite sirah color. Earthy and Oaky on the nose. Big and robust on the palate. Jammy. Tinges of berry on the sides of the tongue. Some tannin. Good value. Will be mating this up in about an hour with grilled marinated sirloin steak. US$8.29 at Total Wines.

    Picked this up due to a recommendation from someone in the forums and WOW! For $9 a bottle, this is an incredible wine. Gorgeous deep purple color, lots of fruit with balanced acidity and a hint of licorice-y sweetness. Plum and sweet blackberry. Not a ton of tannin, but enough to give it structure. A great value and an awesome choice for everyday.

    The 2009 McManis Petit Sirah is a wonderfully round wine with supple notes of blueberry, cherry, vanilla and a soft velvety feel in the mouth. This is one of those wines that you do not need to have it with food to enjoy it. The fruit is well rounded, the alcohol is not very noticeable and the finish is smooth with a touch of sweetness (for a red wine). This is a great into red wine for anyone looking to expand their palate from the typical beginner’s sweet wines.

    Shows the dry astringency, sharp acidity and bitterness of a fine, young Petite Sirah, with currant and pepper flavors accented with smoky oak. Doesn't seem likely to develop, so drink now with hearty fare, like pasta with sausages.

    Heavy on the cola, spice and cedar notes, with ripe dark fruit flavors on a medium body. The chunky tannins are just what you'd expect from a Petite. Drink now through 2014.

    Scads of freshly cracked black pepper show up in this wine, with its raspberry jam and sandalwood flavors. It's soft and simple and slightly sweet, but pretty good for the price.

    Just like blueberry jam. It's incredibly supple and lively for a Petite, with ripe tannins, a decent complexity and notes of spicy oak and licorice. Drink now.

    Black jam and sweet spice turn this into chocolate decadence. A terrific value in a warm red for winter stews.
