(From 2012 Vintage) the color is deep purple-red with a bright purple rim. An essence of rose in the aroma, followed by tobacco, mocha and an undercurrent of berries. As it unfolds on the palate, it delivers a beautiful swirl of concentrated blueberry, raspberry and dark cherry flavors with notes of dark honey and cracked black pepper. Rich and fullbodied, the berries are swathed in a robe of supple tannin, tempered by a pop of juicy acidity carrying the flavors through the finish.
(From 2005 Vintage) A rich and beautifully crafted wine, the Mettler 2005 Petite Sirah shows off a dark, inky color true to its varietal heritage, exotic spice and vibrant fruit aromas. Richly layered plum, blackberry and wild berry flavors retain their purity while being draped with sweet hints of mocha oak. A supple mouth-feel and pleasant hum of restrained tannins show its elegance and balance. This is a dark, juicy and deliciously flavored mouthful of Petite Sirah.
