Wine Review: This pitch-black colored Petite Sirah from Phase V is Excellent! It opens with a black currant, blueberry and dark chocolate bouquet with hints of oak and boysenberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, wonderfully balanced, smooth and silky. The flavor profile is a tasty blueberry and menthol blend with notes of boysenberry. We also detected hints of black plum, anise and oak. The finish is dry and its chalky tannins are well-managed and drift away nicely. The Panel would pair this Petite Sirah with Roy’s rib roast or a New York strip steak. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The 2016 Phase V Petite Sirah is a classic example of an under-the-radar varietal. The color is a dense, deep, dark plum approaching inky. Aromas of currant, huckleberry, tobacco, and sweet vanilla awaken the senses. The palate comes alive with the ripe flavors of blueberries and blackberries, truffles, and a subtle hint of bacon! The firm tannin structure and vibrant acidity of the Phase V Petite Sirah will enable this wine to continue to evolve for years to come. - Philippe Melka
