Wine Review: This opaque and deep ruby colored Petite Sirah from Stags’ Leap opens with a mulberry and licorice bouquet with hints of violets and blackberry. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced and round. The flavor profile is black plum, stony minerality and mulberry blend with notes of black currant and cocoa. We also detected hints of oak and cracked pepper. The finish is dry, and its dusty tannins have moderate length. The Tasting Panel would pair this Petite Sirah with steak fajitas, balsamic steak tips or a Mexican chicken mole. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The 2019 Petite Sirah is dark, inky, and dense, with layers of bramble berry fruit, touches of earth, and lovely floral tones interwoven with more savory notes of black pepper and cigar box spice, all supported by balanced oak integration. On the palate, ripe saturated flavors of cassis, blackberry preserves, blueberry creme, cherry kirsch, vanilla spice, and dark plum envelope the intense mouthfeel. A silky viscosity with voluminous texture, wrapped in velvety mouth-coating tannins, completes the generous and lengthy finish. Perfectly drinkable upon release, but also has the depth and complexity to age for many years to come.
