image

My Rating 82 Points. 
Price $11.

Dark purple / inky in color with a short purplish rim.

Fruity on the nose with grape juice, blackberries, blueberries, plums, metals, oak, vanilla, licorice, wet stones, black pepper and spices.

Medium plus in body with nice acidity and great long legs.

Bone dry on the palate with blackberries, red currants, bell pepper, cherries, plums, dark chocolate, blueberries, pine, leather, licorice, spices, Cola and peppercorn.

Long finish with green, full tannins and tangy strawberries.

This is a nice yet simple Petite Sirah from California. Still young and a little bit unbalanced , but already Enjoyable by itself or with hearty food.
A unique blend of 86% Petite Sirah and 14% Pinot Noir.

I paired it with a beautiful view and a cheese plate.

13.5% alcohol by volume.
