2010 three Petite Sirah Contra Costa Countytite
The Petite Sirah is sourced from a mature vineyard in Contra Costa County with an extremely sandy-loam soil (similar to beach sand). Due to this soil type and moderate growing conditions, the vineyard produces low yields with intense fruit flavors. This wine showcases deep blackberry fruit with a big tannin framework. For those of us who love Petite Sirah, this one will not disappoint. Our friends at Wine Access love this wine and when they are not drinking it, they use it to fill up their Mont Blanc fountain pens.
**Tasting notes to follow soon!** This 2010 Petite Sirah is one to be enjoyed along with that perfect meat focused dish. Whether you're hosting a bbq in the backyard, or making standing rib roast for the holidays, there will be nothing petite about this 2010 Petite Sirah. Only word of caution...make sure if you take that family photo around the holidays, do so before drinking a glass of the 2010 Petite Sirah, this inky blue/black Petite is sure to leave it's mark! Finger paint if you want! Why not?! Cheers!
