2017 Petite Sirah
“Inky dark in the glass, this bottling from the Fess Parker family’s vineyard starts with tarry tones before opening toward aromas of smoked beef ribs and black currant jam. It’s a mouthful of wine on the palate, presenting blueberry, smoked meat and crushed stone, hitting all the dark grape’s classic marks.” ~ Wine Enthusiast
"...is superb. Inky, rich and deep, the 2017 captures the essence of what makes Petite so special. Time in the glass brings out a whole range of lavender, spice, menthol and licorice overtones. There is some reduction (which is common with Petite), so the 2017 needs to be opened well in advance. The tannins, often an issue with Petite, have largely been tamed." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous
"...loaded with ripe blueberry and raspberry fruits as well as notes of spice and chocolate. This rich, chewy, mouthfilling effort has good overall balance..." ~ Jeb Dunnuck
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.
