Vincent Arroyo Petite Sirah 2002

Member Review by EMark:

This is my kind of wine--big and firm. Beautiful inky dark color. Nose forcasts tannins to come. First sip verifies tannin, but fills the mouth with flavor--most notably black pepper. This wine is puckery dry (tannin) and while I normally long for fruit I cannot detect "sweetness" that often accompanies fruit--or from alcohol. I think this wine could have sat in my cellar for several more years. Enjoyed this with a grilled dinner of steak (marinated in the secret red wine concoction), corn on the cob, mushrooms and peppers. $30 at the winery in 2004.
