Wine Review: This impressive pitch black colored Petite Sirah from Aaron finish in second place in our recent blind tasting. It opens with a black licorice bouquet with hints of blackberry, prune, oak and leather. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced, smooth, and dense. The flavor profile is a mild black cherry and dark chocolate blend with hints of menthol, blueberry and touch of oak. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins linger nicely. The panel suggested pairing this winner with beef tenderloin appetizers. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: A blend of 5 vineyards all grown on calcareous/limestone soils, the aromatics show smoked meat, black pepper, lavender, dark chocolate, blueberry, and melted blackberry fruits. The palate steers more towards fresh fruit rather than the dried fruit side, with wild blackberry, bramble, and blueberry. Peppered beef, espresso, toasty oak, and spice hit on the mid palate before the finish sing on with sweet but gravelly tannins. A dose of Syrah adds mid palate and spice.
