My Rating 85 Points.
Beautiful ruby in color with a light ruby rim.
Light on the nose with blueberries, blackberries, figs, sweet plums, black pepper, licorice, wood, vanilla and sour cherries.
Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity and long thin legs.
Very fruity on the palate, and dry, with strawberries, tart cherries, plums, vanilla, licorice, peppercorn, spices, earth and leather.
Medium finish with firm tannins and tart strawberries.
This is a nice, inexpensive, everyday red. Not fully balanced, but has a great mouth feel.
Needs one hour to open up, but becomes somewhat tart after 2 hours. Nice complexity, but needed to be drunk a year earlier.
Made with Organic Petite Sirah grapes.
I paired it with soft and hard cheeses. Will also pair nicely with lamb dishes.
13% alcohol by volume.
