Wine Details




Petite Syrah



Wine Description

Replete with notes of dark and ripe plummy fruit, toasted coconut, and roasted almonds and Brazil nuts...with a touch of kalamata olive thrown in on the finish. Medium to full-bodied, it has a viscous mouth-feel that is somewhat, well, "oily" in its impression (hence, the Brazil nuts), but not in an off-putting way. Rather, the toasty, roasty, oily character of this wine is what I've come to expect from a well-made PS. How enjoyable this wine would be sitting before a campfire, roasting marshmallows...or perhaps chestnuts. A fitting winter wine, indeed. Lake County, California - where this wine's grapes were grown and the wine itself was made - excels in PS, and this wine is a worthy starting point for exploring what this emerging wine region is capable of.
