From the producer: The Petite Sirah has a deep purple color with bright garnet hues. The aromas feature ripe concentrated dark fruits; cassis, boysenberry and black raspberry. Aged in 100% new French Oak, the bouquet provides a smoky oak scent with nuances of patent malt and dark chocolate. On the palate, round rich flavors of dense concentrated black fruits meld with those of mocha and deeply toasted oak. We have gone to great lengths to keep the tannins in check and the result is a fully satisfying finish.
