Wine.Woot Detroit #6 - Detroit Dark & Delicious

Northville, MI

Tasted May 16, 2009 by cheron98 with 695 views

Introduction

As a celebration of the dark and delicious varietal known as Petite Sirah, members of the wine.woot community from across the country gathered together to enjoy a special collection of PS. Some very rare bottles were enjoyed, as well as a few new releases and some staples. An extensive menu was prepared to be enjoyed with the wine and company. The special feature of the evening was a three-year vertical of Petite Sirah ('99, '00, '02) from the now-defunct Acapella label from Cathy Corison. The vines for these wines used to be the Kronos Vineyard, from which Cathy now produces exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon. These wines are not available anywhere.
