Description

Known and loved for its extraordinary inky color and full-bodied favors, Petite Sirah has become a staple in the Epiphany lineup. Blueberry, blackberry, plum, baking spices, smoked meat and tar aromas cannot be contained within the glass. Rich and balanced, this Petite Sirah will flood the palate with dark fruit favors, dark chocolate, cinnamon and grilled herbs with a touch of vanilla coming through on the finish.

Petite Sirah is at its best when paired with richer, more fatty foods or bold exotic spices and herbs. Try with chicken in mole sauce, beefstroganoff, an aged gouda or blue cheese. If looking for a vegetarian option, sautéed mushrooms orstuffed peppers would hold up beautifully to this show-stopper

Wine Critic Reviews
"The 2019 Petite Sirah is deep, powerful wine, but with a bit less of the unctuous opulence of the past. Inky dark fruit, lavender, chocolate and black pepper all meld together. This friendly, heady Petite sure has a ton to offer. I would prefer to drink it on the young side, while the flavors remain vibrant." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous "Brooding aromas of black plum and cassis meet with nutty milk chocolate scents on the nose of this bottle. The palate is thick as expected for this grape, with big berry and violet flavors. A tight acidity keeps it all in check." ~ Wine Enthusiast "...Its deep purple hue is followed by a big bruiser of a wine that's loaded with ripe black fruits, chocolate, gravelly earth, and sappy herbs. It's textured, medium to full-bodied, has ripe tannins, and great balance. It certainly delivers everything you would want from this variety." ~ Jeb Dunnuck
