In the glass, this Dry Creek Petite Sirah has a WIDE inky core with staining electric edges….
When I stick my nose in the glass I’m inundated with dark candied fruit and blackberries —-> Another sniff brings out some of dusty oak and charcoal smoke….
A taste has a dark raspberry start that opens up into juicy blueberries and cedar…. The mid-palate is a little greasy with bacon fat that carries the big mouthfeel into black currants and black cherries ———> The ending is dark as night with blackberries and a cracked pepper kick that haaaaaaaangs on for a good minute and a half….
Here’s a KNOCKOUT Petite Sirah for all my fellow midwesterners searching for a cure to the winter blues…. In MARCH no less ——–> Forget about the impending snow and ice and pop this guy from Optima Winery!
