Description

Looking for a big red that stands up to a great steak? Well look no further; this Petite Sirah is a full-bodied powerhouse with loads of dark fruit, dark chocolate, tar and smoked meat on the palate. This wine offers classic aromas of dark berries, vanilla, baking spices and pepper on the nose.

Don’t be afraid to pair with any smoked or roasted meats. This Petite Sirah will also hold up to richer more fatty foods because of its natural acidity. Better yet, pair with any dark chocolate dessert.
