Wine Review: This opaque dark reddish-purple colored Petite Syrah from Scheid is a crowd pleaser. On the nose, it is a fruity dark fruit blend of blackberries and black currants with faint hints of smoky oak. This is medium bodied and has mouth tingling acidity along with flavors of black plum and cassis. We also detected hints ripe mission fig, vanilla and clove. The tannins are gentle and refined and it has a nice prolonged smoky oak finish. Break this crowd-pleasing Petite Syrah out at your summer barbecue and pair with a juicy smoked pulled pork sandwich. - Dave & Julie

Winemaker Notes: There is nothing petite about Petite Sirah. Rather it earned its name from the small size of the berries. The trick when making P.S. is to highlight the fruit and tame the tannins. Our 2016 is ultra-ripe, full-bodied and opaque in color, as it should be. The nose is ripe and bold with blackberry jam, plum and cedar aromas. The palate is fleshy in texture, with excellent depth, firm structure, and a long, mildly tannic finish with a hint of clove.
