Petite Sirah 2018
A Bold & Fruit Forward Red
Do you want a full-bodied, fruit forward, bold, dark and juicy red with a balancing dry finish?
Look no further than our 2018 Petite Sirah. Commonly mistaken for a type of “Syrah", Petite Sirah is a grape all its own that has a history of boasting big fruit flavors and lots of spice! You may have had it before within some of your favorite red blends and not even known it!
Our Petite Sirah follows in its ancestors' footsteps with gorgeous notes of blackberry, black cherry, plum, and blueberry on the first sip. As you savor it you will notice some flavors of rich preserved fruits, vanilla, and bramble wash over your palate.
Before you think this sounds all too sweet for you, keep in mind, fruity does not equal sweet! In fact, though this wine carries all these luscious fruity flavors, you will find just the right amount of sweetness that is perfectly balanced by the excellent tannins the thick skins of Petite Sirah grapes provide. Those tannins give this bold red a great texture and a nice contrast to all those dark fruits. The finish is lengthy and walnutty in all the best ways.
Overall this wine is excellent on its own as an elegant sipper or a perfect pair for BBQ fare and succulent red meats or grilled veggies. Decant or let the Petite Sirah breath for a bit before enjoying it to experience all the full flavors this wine has to offer.
