2017 Petite Sirah Old Vine, Contra Costa
Year in and year out, our Petite Sirah showcases the incredible decadence this varietal can achieve. This full throttle, beast of a wine is exploding with opulence. The bouquet opens with notes of blueberry liqueur, strawberry preserves, rhubarb, and vanilla. The dense palate is jam packed with notes of ripe blueberry, strawberry, and raspberry that are accented by rhubarb and sagebrush. Everything is held together with seamless tannins, and a plump, juicy texture. The persistent finish trails off with notes of molasses.
