Wine Review: This slightly opaque and inky purple colored Petite Sirah opens with a mild blackberry and black tea bouquet with a hint of wet stone. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, slightly acidic, silky, and smooth. This flavor profile is black currant, blueberry, black tea, and dark chocolate blend with notes gentle oak and nicely integrated earthy minerality throughout. The finish is dry and its acidity and its fine tannins stick around last for quite a very long time. The Panel would pair this Petite Sirah with a Colorado lamb chop. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The 2019 Palisades is dark, almost black with a youthful purple edge. Blackberry, spice, violet floral notes and hints of black Tellicherry pepper are pervasive in the aroma of this wine. This is a big, rich, sumptuous wine with mouth filling intensity, yet it is harmonious and all of one piece. The finish is long, flavorful and satisfying with ample, but not jarring tannins. This is a lovely wine that will live and grow in sophistication for many years.
