2016 Petite Sirah
Lush dusty vanillin oak aromas fuse with ripe blackberry, plum, dark cherry and hints of violet and orange zest to create an enticing nose. The expressive flavors reflect the nose, offering black raspberry, dark plum and ripe cherry mingled with a subtle coffee essence and traces of cocoa and herbs de Provence. Smooth and balanced, this dark beauty is approachable now, but the flavors will deepen and expand with a bit more cellar aging,
A terrific wine to pair with grilled espresso tri-tip roast, or brown butter and sage pan-seared pork chops, and, of course, a decadent chocolate something for dessert.
