Wine Review: This excellent Petite Sirah from Robert Foley is clearly the best Petite I have covered in a while. It is opaque and very dark purple colored. It opens with a moderate black raspberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, very well balanced, and smooth as silk. The flavor profile is a very tasty black raspberry with notes of licorice. I also detected a hint of blueberry and mild oak in the background. The finish is dry and its well managed tannins are lengthy and drift away nicely. I found that this Petite Sirah has an unbelievable mouthfeel. If you are a Petite Sirah fan, this wine is a must try. Pair it with filet mignon and enjoy. Cheers - Ken

Winemaker Notes: With Petite Sirah mountain and valley floor vineyards producing remarkably different character in recent vintages, last year we celebrated the different personalities and presented two 2006 Petite Sirahs: Pepperland and Muscle Man! Combining the characters of last year's Muscleman and Pepperland, our 2007 Petite Sirah is just as muscular, ripe and complex as you might expect. This is serious RED WINE that's 100% Petite Sirah
