BOTTLE NOTES: This full-bodied, spicy Petite Sirah rides high on the palate with an exuberant blackberry flavor. This wine exemplifies the creative fire springing from this burgeoning boutique river region located in Northern California.
TASTING NOTES: It's love at first sight as you gaze into this wine's deep purple plum hues. There is the captivating aroma of dark berry and earthy loam. But it's the taste that will sweep you off your feet. Medium tannins play gently on the palate with luscious deep layers and thick flavors of blackberry, chocolate and tobacco, finished with a hint of pepper. This petite is big, bold and delicious; delivering a knockout punch wrapped in a velvet glove.
