Sobon Family Wines Vicious California Petite Sirah 2012

My Rating 88 Points.   

Price $14.



Deep purple in color with a purplish rim.

Mild nose of blackberries, blueberries, cherries, licorice, light vanilla, wood, spices, peppercorn, leather and smoke.

Medium bodied with medium acidity and long legs.

Very fruity on the palate with blackberries, plums, cherries, currants, raspberries, earth, green herbs, spices, peppercorn and tobacco.

Long finish with soft tannins, black pepper and tangy pomegranates.

A nice Californian Red Wine.Not very complex, but very tasty. Good out of the bottle, and becomes more complex as it opens up.
Balanced with a nice mouthfeel, and enjoyable by itself or with food. The tangy ending is interesting.

I Paired it with cheeses and light appetizers, by the river, a nice way to end the weekend.

14.1% alcohol by volume.
