December 2021 Wine of the Month: 2020 American Petite Sirah
We are excited to offer this new 2020 Petite Sirah for the Holiday Season! Petite Sirah holds a special place in the wide variety of reds that Winemaker John Balistreri produces. Whether he is sampling it from the barrels or enjoying a glass at dinner, it always brings a smile and a sense of pure satisfaction.
He loves the intense flavors and the all-around power that Petite Sirah brings to the glass. This Petite is one of three amazing Petite Sirah’s that we produced in 2020. The grapes for this new release were grown by Cooper Vineyards in Amador Country, California. We always receive excellent fruit from these guys. Keep an eye out for more Petites in the coming months!
Unique Flavors of this 2020 Petite Sirah
Take some time to savor and indulge in this decadent and luscious Petite Sirah. Inky black in color, you’ll see creamy aromas of black fruit, tropical guava, and licorice. Similar sensations roll across the tongue as this wine’s tannin and body envelop the mid-palate, lingering long after the finish.
This wine can be enjoyed now while it’s young and wild. And, it’s most certainly a great one to stow away a few extra bottles in the cellar for years to come.
