Deep red color with a light but noticable spice characterizes this wine. Upon first consumption this Petitie Sirah is noticeably less fruty than others I have tried, however dry the tannins are present but light. The finish is more present on the front of your tounge and very smooth on the back. Berry flavors are again a little absent relative to other PS’s but the light spice is quite nice and would accompay red meat very well.
Vitner’s notes: “The resulting components display notable differences,some exuding bright,spice-tinged fruit while others are jammy,earthy and dense.The blend in many ways exceeds the sum of these parts,offering blackberry,blueberry and white pepper aromas,with a supple and balanced feel coming from our gentle handling of the fruit.Limiting the influence of new oak allows the fruit to shine through,making this wine versatile with foods,and ready to drink now.”
I’d agree with the white pepper but I just didn’t get the frut in this one, even as described by the Vinter.
