2010 Petite Sirah, Port Style Wine
100% Petite Sirah Dessert Wine, Port Style
Highly potent vanillin, almost vanilla extract, is elevated by the generous heat of the nose. Loads of sweet spice is present, both aromatically and on the palate, with root beer notes of sarsaparilla and sassafras shining through. This Port style wine has developed incredible palate weight and density, as it was concentrated during its 10 years of barrel aging. The time in barrel has also refined the tannins to give a great, rounded texture to the wine. As the dark fruit falls away, the wine slides into a lengthy finish, with belly-warming heat. This is a lovely wine for sharing with family after holiday meals, or to fortify yourself against the upcoming cold, winter nights. Bottled in a traditional 500 mL size.
