The Other Guys Petite Sirah California Pennywise 2008
Score: N/A Tasting Notes: With deep purple color, this wine has an exotic aroma of blackberries and smoky bacon which draws you further into the glass. The first sip shows you Petite Sirahâs silky fruit forward flavors of black raspberry, strawberry, and candied blueberries. The second sip shows you the depth of this wine, with notes of tobacco leaf, French roast coffee, and blackberry compote smuggling even more fruit that shines throughout this blend. This is a brilliant berry explosion that holds its ground with round tannins, bacon nuances, and rich French oak. This wine would be fantastic with grilled wild game; venison, wild boar, or pheasant with a blackberry/balsamic glaze and a side of roasted butternut squash. Also try pork loin stuffed with dried figs and tasso ham alongside parmesan-crusted polenta with crispy shallots, or barbeque chicken pizza with smoky gouda. Web Site: Click Here
My Rating 86: The nose has some oak on it with undertones of blackberry. Body is quite dry with little interesting flavors except the oak. This must be a mixture of 2nd tier wine that where not good enough for certain vintners.
Has a quick finish. Gives the hint of berries...mostly plum.
