Wine Review: This midnight purple colored Petite Sirah from Burgess opens with a black cherry and Bazooka bubble gum bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and rich. The flavor profile is a tasty blueberry with notes of minerality, toasty oak and a hint of cinnamon. The wine transforms a bit on day two with some Bordeaux like cedar showing up. It finishes dry and its moderate tannins stick around for a very long time. The Panel suggested pairing this Petite Sirah with smoked beef brisket. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: With the grapes growing at 1000' elevation above the frost line, the location lends itself to producing high quality Petite Sirah grapes. This is a classy version of Petite Sirah with smooth, dense blackberry and cherry flavors. The incredible color and firm tannins confirm it is a Petite Sirah. With its famous heartiness, this is the ultimate fancy burger or gourmet thin crust pizza wine!
