2020 Sandy Lane Vineyard Petite Sirah
The 2020 Sandy Lane Vineyard Petite Sirah is a testament to just how special this varietal can be when grown by ancient vines in California. It is immensely concentrated, wonderfully textured, yet still retains a sense of freshness. The bouquet is completely loaded with black and blue fruits, that are lifted by savory spice. The palate kicks things off with an explosion of ripe dark berry fruits, that are then punctuated by ripe tannin on the mid-palate and brightened by enlivening acidity on the finish, which goes on for nearly a minute. This is a robust and powerful expression of this beloved varietal, that is all too easy to drink!
