Wine Review: This squid ink purple colored Petite Sirah from Theopolis opens with a cedar and black raspberry bouquet with hints of mint, forest floor and blackberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and smooth, yet juicy. The flavor profile is a cedar influenced plum with notes of red currant. We also detected hints of sage, dark chocolate and black pepper. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins were nicely prolonged. The Panel suggested pairing this Petite Sirah with pork tenderloin with thyme. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: This Petite Sirah is our biggest, boldest and most elegant wine. It is made in the Old World style of winemaking. Yet, its silky, curvy and feminine bouquet of delicious and ripe dark red fruit brings it into the New World of winemaking. The wine is full bodied, rich and flavorful on the palate with hints of blueberries, dark chocolate, currents, tobacco and black tea. It has fine tannins with a pure and smooth finish. This vintage will stand up now and age beautifully for decades. It will pair well with stews, braised and grilled beef, pot roast, veal, lamb and sausage.
