Inky in color with a short purple rim.
Strong fruity nose of black currants, plums, cooked cherries, dried fruits, light oak, spices, chocolates, coffee, licorice and black pepper.
Full bodied and smooth, with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, plums, cooked cherries, oak, vanilla, licorice, spices, tobacco, milk chocolates, coffee, cola and peppercorn.
Nice finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cherries.
This is a nice and easy drinking Petite Sirah from Mendocino County.
Nicely balanced, rich and fruit forward. Showing nice complexity with a nice mouthfeel.
Good right out of the bottle and better after an hour of airtime.
Still young, and would be better in a few years. Will be nice to revisit it in a couple of years, and see how it evolved.
Good by itself as a sipping wine, and good with BBQ Meats.
14.8% alcohol by volume.
