2018 Riserva Petite Sirah
A characteristic aroma swirls on this deep, rich wine with blackberry, marionberry, toasted oak, black pepper, and vanilla. As the wine opens on the palate, additional flavors emerge with spicy notes of licorice root, star anise, root beer, black tea, and dark chocolate. The fruit flavors unfold with plum and black fruit. Savor the medium mouthfeel and flavorful finish for a very enjoyable sip.
This vintage was aged in 60% new oak, a blend of 48% American, 31% Hungarian, and 21% French oak for 21 months prior to bottling.
