Region: Livermore Valley
Variety: Petite Sirah
Hard in tannins and acidic, this is a pretty unrelieved wine when it comes to palate enjoyment. It’s not offering much, but there is a big heart of blackberries and dark, ripe cherries, leading to speculations about ageability. Since this is Petite Sirah, it’s likely to gradually soften and mellow for at least ten years.
