2009 Petite Sirah, Contra Costa, 6L
Our 2009 Petite Sirah is dry farmed near the town of Oakley. This wine displays aromatics of espresso covered chocolates, blue fruit, and toast. The tannin structure, weight, and balance remind us of what Petite Sirah is all about. On the palate you'll enjoy ripe, jammy fruit flavors, spice, with wonderful red fruit, cherry, raspberry and currant flavors. The intensity and persistence of the flavors are supported by the firmly tannic structure. Enjoy with short ribs in a heavy Petite Sirah reduction and truffle risotto.
