Wine Review: This big boy Petite Sirah is not for wimps. It is opaque and pitch black colored. It opens with blackberry and anise bouquet with a hint blueberry as well. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic, juicy and fruit forward. There is also a presence of tannin in this wine throughout, not just in the end. The flavor profile is an intense and extracted ripe blackberry with notes of integrated boysenberry. I also detected some oak and blueberry in the background. The finish dry and its dry and dusty tannins stick around for quite some time. This wine would be perfect by the fireplace with some sharp cheese. You could also decant it and serve it with some well-marbled red meat. Enjoy – Ken
