Wine Review: This pitch-black colored Petite Sirah from Robert Foley opens with a black plum and black raspberry bouquet with hints of wet slate, cigar box and prune. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, well-balanced, and smooth. The flavor profile is a stewed black plum and boysenberry blend with notes of crushed stone and menthol. We also detected hints of mocha, baking spices and raisin. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins are nicely extended and a little warm. The Panel would pair this Petite Sirah with New York strip steak and Cuban cigar. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: This 100% Petite Sirah is a truly fruit-focused bottling. This is a massively extracted beauty with an elegant balance. Fully ripe blackberry aroma with a hint of graphite, the lushness on the palate is amazing with mouthfilling viscosity that resolves in a lingering soft finish with gentle tannin.
