In the glass this estate grown Petite Sirah from the Yorkville Highlands AVA of Mendocino has a HUGE asphalt black core with electric purple edges surrounded by an inky halo….
The nose is intoxicating and alive with black cherries smattered across a slab of cedar wood ———> Another sniff throws out some anise and cocoa nib and I’m fallin’ in love….
A taste starts weighty on the tongue with notes of greasy wild game and more of the black fruit I got on the nose ———-> The mid-palate tightens up a bit with some over-seeped black tea tannin that grabs my attention before raspberries and black plums slow dance into a loooooooong bacon fat infused blackberry finish that leaves me blushing….
Fire up the grill and toss on your favorite meat because THIS is your summer BBQ wine!!! Theopolis Vineyards has hit another home run with this Petite Sirah ———–> This puppy is big and inky but still allows plenty of fruit to shine through 🎧🎧🎧 Listen to this wine while chilling on the deck with something like Mofro – Fireflies
