Decanted 6 hours and served with medium-rare rib roast. Truly a perfect pairing, the wine backed up the roast beautifully. Didn't get in the way, but was deliciously smooth with enough acidity to refresh.
Another home run vintage from my favorite petite syrah that I can actually afford.
Midnight purple color. Decanted x 3 hours. Tannic and big. Complex. Leather, black fruit, spice, cloves, cinnamon on nose but lets be honest, I'm making this stuff up - theres a lot going on and if you like big petite syrah with a punch this is it. Acidity is just right.
Consumed over 3 days. Fantastic value. First day was more approachable than I remember my first bottle a year ago. Only decanted about 30 mins. Just a year has really brought it around. 3rd day was still fantastic with more fruit than on the 1st day.
It was a very pleasant ending to what could have been a disaster. I'd bought several old bottles at a local benefit, and next time, I'll look at them very carefully. This lovely Petite Sirah was my choice to soothe my sorrow, and it succeeded mightily. It's drinking well right now. Beautiful color, aroma of summer and berries and smoke, and excellent taste.
