Wine Review: This dark purple colored Petite Sirah based blend is a big boy. It opens with an inviting ripe blackberry jam bouquet with notes of boysenberry and oak. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, slightly acidic and juicy, while fully coating your mouth. The flavor profile is a tasty stewed plum and acai berry blend with notes of black raspberry tea, black pepper and a touch of licorice. The finish is rather dry and its flavors and sticky tannins linger for quite a while. This wine hit the spot on a cold and rainy evening. Serve it with Kerrygold Dubliner cheese and stone wheat thins. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This reserve blend of Syrah and Petite Sirah brings to life many of the flavors of its hillside vineyard: berries, rhubarbs, and a gentle earthiness. This medium-bodied, round red has notes of light eucalyptus and rich red earth in the summer. We think it’ll age beautifully for 10+ years in your cellar.
