Mcmanis Family Vineyards Petite Sirah California 2010
The Petite Sirah is deep purple in color with a bright hue. Ripe blackberry aromas mingle with toffee and clove. Succulent dark fruit flavors are copious in this full-bodied wine. The long mocha finish is absent of any astringency that you might expect to find in such a big dark wine.
My Rating 90: Very full bodied concentrated wine with an almost tar like berry taste what is rather untypical for a Sirah. Nose is well balance and not to overpowering. Altogether unusual and a pleasure to drink
I wasn't expecting much for my $10 at the local grocery store, but this is a good wine. It has a deep purple color and a very full body although I tasted a very slight tannic aftertaste.

This is a soft, easy Petite Sirah, rich in blackberry and currant flavors, with a smoky, chewy meatiness, like the salty, charred edge of a roast. Bone dry, it offers a lot of pleasure for the price.
